    The official commissioning of art during the Second World War was designed to make a record of the conflict but also to keep the nation's most promising artists in relatively safe employment. Thishistory recounts how the nine artists who got closest to the action - among them Eric Ravilious, Edward Bawden and Edward Ardizzone -adapted to service life and responded to their experiences. Far from working in safety, three of this group died, two were torpedoed and two taken prisoner.
