The Second World War was a total war which demanded the effort of the whole nation to ensure survival and, ultimately, victory. It was also a war where the state necessarily became involved in directing the economy and organising society: in the words of David Thomson it produced ‘a sense of national purpose’, which was used to pursue ‘social justice’ after 1945. This chapter will concentrate on the Home Front and the social and economic impact the war had on Britain.
