Front Line 1940-41: The Official Story of the Civil Defence of Britain

Front Line is a tale of individual effort and performance. This book was produced whilst Britain was in the thick of World War 2, and victory was by no means certain. The text is undoubtedly morale boosting propaganda, but it is a fascinating read.
