9780786437856: Who Will Take Our Children? The British Evacuation Program of World War II, rev. ed.

The evacuation of British children before and during World War II transformed the country forever and vastly altered the lives of thousands of English children and their families. The government geared up as early as 1938 for the war it strongly suspected was ahead, organizing the monumental task of sending more than four million people-mostly children-first to the relative "safety" of the British countryside and then to Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the United States, and elsewhere.

This is a revised edition of the book published in 1985 as Who Will Take Our Children? The Story of the Evacuation in Britain, 1939-1945. It incorporates substantial new information and first-person accounts from former evacuees and others involved in the wartime relocation effort.
