TALK: At eleven o’clock on September 3rd 1939, Britons gathered round their wireless sets to hear Neville Chamberlain’s announcement that ‘this country is at war’.

Felicity Goodall spent 18 months in archives reading contemporary diaries and letters to build a picture of what life was really like for ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances.
