popular series. This book paints a detailed vivid picture of life in and around 
Northampton during WWII. – Very Highly Recommended.

The story of Northampton at War contains details shared with most British cities, 
together with all those things that make the story fascinatingly unique. The author has 
combined solid research, local knowledge, enthusiasm and good photographic selection.

This story fits neatly into the book recounting Northampton during the Great War. 
Better prepared and informed than the population in 1914, The inhabitants of 
Northampton were ahead of the politicians in recognizing that a new war with 
Germany was inevitable. They also had the shared experiences of WWI, which had 
been unique as the first total industrial war in history.

The author has explained the structure of organizations established for war, rationing, 
war industry and further social change. Many questions are posed and 
comprehensively answered.
