Description

Three fabulous CDs, featuring sixty-four nostalgia-soaked tracks from the War Years, comprise this essential commemorative WWII box set. Original recordings by the original artists - including Vera Lynn, Gracie Fields and Doris Day - all tracks have been digitally re-mastered and sensitively restored. Each CD comes complete with its own richly informative booklet of liner notes.

Life on the home-front is richly evoked by way of a unique blend of the songs, sounds, speeches and public service broadcasts to which the people of Britain lived, laughed and loved their way through the dark years of the Second World War.
