'Women of Britain, your country needs you!' Bombers and Mash tells the story of the Second World War on the domestic front. It takes us from the kitchen to the nursery showing how women managed without almost everything from potato peelers, cosmetics and prams to food, fuel, transport - and men. These women coped with rationing, evacuation, separation from families, long hours of work in factories, hospitals and on the land. Through it all they kept the nation fed on ingeniously nutritious and economical meals - hundreds of the best, and some of the worst, are included here. In print for over thirty years, Bombers and Mash is moving, fascinating and full of posters and images from the Second World War. It is both an illustrated social history and a cookery book offering a remarkable picture of the deprivation and drama of the women's war.

Publishers Weekly, 1985-11-15 The familiar English meal of ``bangers and mash'' (sausages and mashed potatoes) provides the pun for this compendium of photographs, advertisements, recipes and recollections of English women's experiences during World War II. Minns considers the home front struggle ``not a war of pitched battles between armies but one of wrecked plumbing, substitute egg powder, frightened children and fearsome austerity measuresorchestrated by enemy bombs and British bureaucracy.'' She covers the evacuation of children, women in factories, the Dig for Victory campaign, GI's, and postwar problems of reunited families, among many other topics. Actual recipes from austerity cookbooks enliven the narrative: Medicinal Jam, Parsnip Wine, Victory Flan, Farmhouse Herb Salve, and Dunkirk Delight are some. This collection effectively portrays the appalling hardships women experienced. December (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
