Despite the government discouraging the keeping of diaries for security reasons, nearly half of the 16,000 letters, journals and memoirs held at the Imperial War Museum relate to the Second World War. This edited selection presents the day-to-day experiences of British service personnel and civilians in all theatres of the conflict, from soldiers and POWs in Europe, Africa and the Far East to Londoners braving the Blitz.
