WE SHALL DEFEND OUR ISLAND

When Britain declared war on Germany in September 1939, the average civilian would have had little idea how crucial their role would be in the war effort. With their lives ever-more restricted by rationing, curfews and black outs, and while under repeated attack, normal people reacted by mobilising on a scale that took the concept of ‘doing your bit’ to a new level – from the real Dad’s Army to Land Girls.

PLUS… HITLER VS BRITAIN
From admiration and respect to fierce foe, how did the Fuhrer’s relationship with Britain take such a bitter turn?

Also inside the issue…

SEX AND VIOLENCE BEHIND THE CANVAS
His paintings were dramatic both in style and subject, but Caravaggio would never have created his masterpieces if his own life was not equally as wild.

MASSACRE OF THE CLANS
A single, brief-but-bloody battle, fought on a Scottish moor on a cold spring day in 1746, brought an end to the Jacobites’ bid to reclaim the British crown for the Stuarts.

LIFE OF THE GREAT SOUL
The man who used peaceful protest to fight the British Empire and change the world: Mahatma Gandhi.
