The Second World War - an East Midlands Focus

Ref: C2339053

The course will include the effects of the "phoney war" of the first few months, eg: conscription, air raid precautions, and the ongoing disruption of normal life patterns by measures like rationing and commandeering of resources, and how local industries were mobilised to play a part in the war effort. We will also be looking at the extent of bombing raids on Leicester and the county and effects on the population together with the impact of aspects like evacuees, prisoners of war, "digging for victory" and the arrival of US troops, together with the role played by women in the maintenance of essential services and work in munitions factories.
