The impact of the war on family life in Britain was profound. In "Ealing at War" Dennis Upton explores the wartime experiences, often disruptive and sometimes grievous, endured by the men, women and children of Ealing, Acton and Southall. Including 100 contemporary photographs this is a unique pictorial tribute to how one of London's boroughs dealt with being at Britain's 'frontline' during the Blitz years. Dennis Upton has dedicated many years to exploring the history of the Home Front and in this book his detailed captions explore the devastating toll of the war on Ealing and its residents. This book is an important record of this extraordinary time in Ealing's history and is a moving tribute to the undefeatable spirit of the British people.
