The evacuation of Britain's urban children to the countryside was a uniquely emotional decision by the British government during the Second World War. The Pitkin Guide to Evacuees tells the colourful story of this mass exodus. As well as providing a clear narrative of how evacuation policy unfolded during the war, it also gives a deep insight into the experience of those who were evacuated. The personal stories vary greatly. The guide delves into many other elements of the evacuation experience: the practical challenges of housing thousands of displaced children in small villages and towns; the behavioural issues; the effect on the school system; how mothers coped with being separated from their children. Enhanced by superb photographic imagery, here is a complete and accessible reference guide to the mass evacuation of Britain's children.
