Life in Britain changed dramatically as the war progressed- the annual celebration of Christmas provides fascinating yearly snapshots, illuminating the changes over six years of conflict.

What was the weather like? What was on the wireless? What were the popular records and sheet music of the time? What films were showing at the cinema? What about the pantomimes, shows and concerts? Parties, decorations and trees? Gifts and food are discussed with a look at the presents available, and in vogue.

As shortages really took a hold, the various make-do-and-mend solutions are described, and insights are gained into how people adapted food recipes to cope.
