In his new book, a follow-up to the highly successful "Frontline Essex", Michael Foley vividly describes life in the county during the Second World War, drawing not only on a wealth of written sources but also on dozens of interviews with people who lived through the war on the Home Front, as children or as adults. It includes subjects such as morale-boosting and fund-raising organisations, the Home Guard and regular forces billeted in the county, wartime industries, evacuees and the minutiae of everyday living conditions, interwoven with a brief account of national and international events, to set the county's story in context. The author's research shows that the impression we all have of a population 'pulling together' in a time of crisis isn't the whole story. With its wide range of illustrations, "Ready for Anything" will bring back memories for some, and will be an eye-opener for anyone who lives in or grew up in Essex.
