    It was probably Michael Foot, leader writer for the London Evening Standard in 1939, who coined the memorable slogan, 'Dig For Victory', that would help transform parks, gardens and playing fields into vegetable patches. This history reviews the remarkable success of the wartime campaign, explores the groundbreaking design and advertising that drove it and recounts the experiences of the home front gardeners themselves.
