a New Yorker cartoon might tickle you, but a good Punch could draw blood The Times
fascinating insight into the changing face of British humour...as a social history of Britain from the 1840's to the 1990's, a cherishable present The Daily Mail
handsomely thorough The Guardian
A fascinating portrait of the British on the Home Front and overseas, PUNCH Goes to War portrays humour and bulldog spirit alongside the great events of WW2. Historian Asa Briggs wrote that Punch captured the mood of the period more evocatively than any other source.
Punch’s renowned cartoons, above all, bring to life the restrictions, foibles and fears of wartime Britain. Gas masks, blackouts, evacuation, identity cards, air raids, rationing, Digging for Victory, Land Girls and Bevin Boys, Punch depicted the British as they Kept Calm and Carried On.
Foreword by Griff Rhys Jones
Over 460 cartoons from the greatest illustrators of the day - E H Shepard, Fougasse, Pont, Sillince, Rowland Emett, David Langdon, Anton and many more with themed feature pages on Rationing and the Blitz.
Stunning full page colour plates & political cartoons - classic images of Churchill, Hitler, Stalin, Roosevelt and Mussolini – many never reproduced before.
A selection of timeless prose - P G Wodehouse, E M Delafield, Basil Boothroyd, Geoffrey Willans’ Molesworth, reviews of wartime film classics and vivid eye-witness reports from Parliament as Churchill galvanised the nation with titanic speeches.
If one wants to take the temperature of wartime Britain – particularly life on the Home Front – there are few better ways than through the pages of Punch.
