Summary
A moving and revealing insight into the real experiences of women welcoming home their menfolk from the Second World War - often after years of separation, during which their men, and the women themselves, had changed irrevocably. Over four million ex-servicemen were demobilised between 1945 and 1947, returning to a Britain that had also changed. Women had become the main breadwinners... but when the war was over, there were many wives who had to deal with an injured, emotionally damaged husband; mothers whose sons did not want to speak about their horrific experiences; and women, who believed their fiances were dead, only to find them reappearing after they had married someone else
