Reading at War 1939–45

David Bilton

The proximity of Reading to London and the Thames made it a prime location for evacuees and in 1941 it became the first ‘Closed Town’. With numerous photographs and illustrations, this volume recalls the war’s impact on everyday life in the town, as factories switched to essential war work, black-outs were enforced and rationing took hold.
