Prose: non-fiction, History, British & Irish history

Following in the footsteps of Victorian Farm (45,000 sales through Bookscan), Wartime Farm accompanies the must-see 8-part BBC2 television series of the same name. 'Victorian Farm' registered in excess of 4 million viewers.

Life on a wartime farm was very different from rural life before the war. Britain looked to the land to provide those things that had previously been shipped to our shores from far-off lands and expected every man (and woman!) to dig for victory. From how to select the most return-efficient animals to farm to how to make satisfying food on the meagre ration allowance, this book will reveal the tenacity and true grit that was needed to survive - and thrive - in wartime Britain. With text written by the series presenters to explain the obstacles they faced and to set their achievements within a historical context, and including on-set images combined with authentic historical photography and ephemera, this book will prove far more than a series companion and will bring one of the most important and interesting chapters of British rural life into vivid relief, providing fascinating historical detail, atmospheric story telling and compelling reading.
