"This is a rich and potent mix of topics that both enhances our knowledge of the wars and, perhaps more significantly, suggests yet more avenues for future research. … This book in its wide-ranging survey is certainly 'doing its bit' to challenge some of the misconceptions we hold about the two home fronts, opens up discussion on several hitherto neglected aspects and adds significantly to our knowledge." (Peter Grant, Review in History, history.ac.uk, April, 2016)
