Food in Wartime Britain: Testimonies from the Kitchen Front (1939–1945) (Routledge Studies in Second World War History) 1st Edition

 
 Based on deep analysis of Mass Observation wartime diaries, Food in Wartime Britain explores the food experience of the British middle classes in their own words throughout the course of the Second World War. It reveals that, while the food practices of the population were modified by rationing and food scarcity, social class and personal circumstances were key dimensions of the wartime food experience that demand to be taken into account in the historical narrative of the Home Front.
