The "Britain in Pictures" series presents an important collection of images from the Press Association's unique archive, most of which have lain unseen since they were first used in the newspapers of their day.

The 1940s took the country to the very brink of disaster in a war that was fought as much in its towns and villages, as on the battlefields of Europe, Africa and elsewhere.

Against all the odds the enemy was defeated, leaving the nation victorious but facing severe challenges in its post-war years, leading to an extraordinary period of social reform.
