"A fascinating history" - The Daily Mail

"Wonderful stories… a well-written account of the last line of defence" – The Daily Mirror

The enduring popularity of the BBC tv series Dad’s Army has focused attention on one of the strangest and least military armies ever formed — The British Home Guard. What started as an improvised band of volunteers, had grown by 1942 into a conscripted, disciplined and well equipped force with a strength of nearly two million men.

Norman Longmate, an ex-member of the Home Guard and an authority on wartime Britain, has collected together a wealth of hilarious anecdotes as well as all the unlikely facts to produce the first popular history of the Home Guard to be written since the war.
