The three months between the fall of Germany in May 1945 and the surrender of Japan in August would shape the world for generations to come. Europe lay in rubble, the Iron Curtain descended across the continent, and a Labour government was elected in Britain. Combining archive sources and new eyewitness interviews, this 'people's history' recounts the experiences of men and women from all levels of society and across the globe during that fateful summer - soldiers and civilians, victors and vanquished.
