Daniel Todman, Britain’s War: Into Battle, 1937-1941 (London: Allen Lane, 2016). Todman is, perhaps, more known for his work on the First World War; however, this book has been in the works for some years. It is the first of two volumes examining the Britain’s experience of the Second World War and is likely to become one the standard texts on the subject.  At 848 pages, this first volume is, despite the scope of the topic, a deep consideration of the topic, though, I suspect some areas will receive more treatment that other. The book cover military, political, social, economic and diplomatic aspects of the conflict and I am quite excited to read this, which is not something I to which I often admit!
