Taking a chronological approach, The War on Paper tells the story of the most destructive war in history through 20 key documents held in the IWM archives.
Ranging from high-level iconic records including the signed order to invade Poland on August 1939 and Hitler's final will and testament, to more personal items such as Kindertransport identity papers and the ration book of Queen Mary, The Queen Mother.
Published to coincide with the 80th anniversary of the signing of the Munich Agreement, this audiobook gives a great insight into how 20 pieces of paper came to shape the Second World War and history as we know it.
