When history books cover war, they write of the battles, the troops, the attacks and the outcomes. But for the older generation who grew up in wartime, the most vivid memories they have are of how extraordinary their ordinary lives became. Where they lived and sheltered, what they ate, what they heard on the wireless or saw around them - all these details provide a rich record for young readers of today. A Wartime Scrapbook brings together historical facts, rare pictures and very specific memories. Together, they tell the fascinating story of family life in Wales during the Second World War.
