Stephen Howarth's vivid and evocative chronicle of August '39 is a poignant, comic, frightening echo of those yesterdays half a century ag. This informative book cover the last four week of peace (August 2-September 3, 1939) before the Nazis invaded Poland and started WWII. The approach the author took in telling this story is what appealed to me. He used a cross section of people from politicians to doctors to fishermen to housewives and looked at their lives during these eventful weeks.

Here, Howarth (The Knights Templar, 1982, et. provides a captivating, capsule chronicle of how the British experienced the last month of pre-WW II peace against the backdrop of fateful, historic events by world powers. A people's history compiled mostly from the memories of ordinary Britons, the volume errs, if at all, in underplaying a people blindly caught up in the riptide of fate. August 1939 was fateful indeed. Hitler had resolved to war against proud Poland, whose independence was guaranteed by an appeasement-minded Britain

I remember the time well, though I was of course not as conscious of it as the people Howarth discusses. Really an easy book to read, though not profound.

Uses interviews, diaries, letters, and public records to reconstruct the month prior to Britain's declaration of war against Germany
