This is another paragraph Review: Snowdrops have been in flower for weeks. Violets are still waiting to bloom. Broad beans are showing their heads perkily. But I forget. We are at war. The boys in the village are leaving one by one.' Maggie Joy Blunt; 'A lovely book. It will appeal to anyone who appreciates the richness and diversity of human experience' - Tony Benn; 'I haven't read a more engrossing book in years' - John Carey, Sunday Times; 'a quite magical store of voices from another age' - Observer; 'These are invaluable records of quiet lives, sometimes despairing, often moving, occasionally bitter, frequently prescient. Occasionally they are just plain funny' - Sunday Telegraph; 'richly textured diaries. what really makes the book is the fresh light it sheds on the immediate post-war years. it is history from the other end of the telescope - what life was like on the ground' - Financial Times; 'For me the year's most compulsively readable book, a rich trove of entertainment and instruction. As five diarists candidly record their post-war experiences and reactions, social history vividly unrolls and personalities fascinatingly unfurl' - Peter Kemp, Sunday Times n nReview nFascinating, delightful, illuminating. The diarists soon become like old friends . . . and make our wartime past seem no more distant than yesterday."
