Beginning with VE Day and describing the first months of peace and the first years of Attlee's government, up to the launch of National Insurance and the NHS on 5 July 1948, this first book of Kynaston's much-acclaimed series Tales of a New Jerusalem records the reactions of the British people to the austerity of the early post-war years and to wider events such as Hiroshima, the Communist coup in Czechoslovakia and the arrival of the Empire Windrush.
