When war broke out in 1939, few knew that they would soon be fighting to survive, let alone how or when it would end. "Rations: A Very Peculiar History" looks at the measures the British government took to ensure the wellbeing of its people during wartime, and how the British public dealt with it. With some stealing, some hoarding, but most just trying to get by, it was one of the bleakest periods in British history. But there's a reason they called it 'the Blitz spirit' - this title features amazing tales of camaraderie and good humour in the face of bombs and hunger. Featuring incredible food-and-energy-saving recipes used at the time, along with quotes from survivors, "Rations: A Very Peculiar History" will transport you back to a time when even Buckingham Palace and the Ritz hotel weren't above swapping a bit of venison for a bit of lobster. Spectacular full-colour endpapers feature ephemera of the topic and time, while a full glossary and index help to make the books both fun and informative.
