She apologized for things she couldn't remember doing, as though she were cleaning up after an evil twin. Publicly, sh...

Blackout Book Description :

The most universal civilian privation in World War II Britain, the blackout possessed many symbolic meanings.

Nevertheless, the war machine demanded ...
