In May 1940, Hitler invaded the Netherlands and the phony was was over. It would take five years to defeat Nazi tyranny in Europe and finally, in August 1945, the dropping of two atomic bombs on Japan to bring the Second World War to an end. Post-war Britian saw a return to austerily, but conditions gradually improved and the National Health Service came into being. Internationally, Soviet Russia retreated behind the Iron Curtain. A new enemy was defined - communism. Serviceman and women remember the battles on air, and land; prisoners of war describe how they coped and civilians speak of bombs and doodlbugs. The words of Winston Churchill, JB Priestley and the irreverence of ITMA boosted morale in the darkest hours, and throughout it all the BBC's own correspondents all over the world reported on this turbulent decade.
