1940 has long been regarded as the time when political parties put aside their differences to unite under Churchill and focus on the task of war.
But the war years witnessed a radical shift in political power - dramatically expressed in Labour's decisive electoral victory in 1945.
In his acclaimed study, Paul Addison traces this sea-change back to the Thirties and goes on to recapture the powerful spirit of post-war reconstruction.
