Based on deep analysis of Mass Observation wartime diaries, Food in Wartime Britain explores the food experience of the British middle-classes from their own words throughout the course of the Second World War. It reveals that while the food practices of the population were modified by rationing and food scarcity, social class and personal circumstances were a key dimension of the wartime food experience that demand to be taken into account in the historical narrative of the Home Front.
