La voix de la France. BBC, Une

Les voix de la liberté. Mais, comme l’indique le sous-titre et comme le précise l’avant-propos, "ce n’est pas la mise en place de la résistance civile que ce livre présente, mais les contenus journalistiques et les logiques sous-jacentes aux mots diffusés, en lien avec la politique étrangère du Royaume-Uni entre la crise de Munich et la libération de l’Europe". Construit en huit courts chapitres en succession chronologique, complété par un solide appareil critique, l’ouvrage est à la fois clair dans son propos et dense dans son contenu.

History: World War Two. History - The Blitz (pictures, video, facts & news) Royal Air Force. The Royal Air Force (RAF) is the United Kingdom's aerial warfare force.

Royal Air Force

Formed towards the end of the First World War on 1 April 1918,[3] it is the oldest independent air force in the world.[4] Following victory over the Central Powers in 1918 the RAF emerged as – at the time – the largest air force in the world.[5] Since its formation, the RAF has taken a significant role in British military history, in particular, playing a large part in the Second World War where it fought its most famous campaign, the Battle of Britain.[6] History[edit] Origins[edit]

The Women's Auxiliary Air Force (WAAF), whose members were referred to as WAAFs /ˈwæfs/, was the female auxiliary of the Royal Air Force during World War II, established in 1939.

Women's Auxiliary Air Force

At its peak strength, in 1943, WAAF numbers exceeded 180,000, with over 2,000 women enlisting per week. History[edit] A Women's Royal Air Force had existed from 1918 to 1920. The WAAF was created on 28 June 1939, absorbing the forty-eight RAF companies of the Auxiliary Territorial Service which had existed since 1938.[1] Conscription of women did not begin until 1941. It only applied to those between 20 and 30 years of age and they had the choice of the auxiliary services or factory work. Women recruited into the WAAF were given basic training at one of five sites, though not all of the sites ran training simultaneously. Air Force nurses belonged to Princess Mary's Royal Air Force Nursing Service instead. WAAFs were paid two-thirds of the pay of male counterparts in RAF ranks. Ranks[edit] Directors[edit] Notes[edit]

Rationing in Britain during World War 2. During World War II all sorts of essential and non-essential foods were rationed, as well as clothing, furniture and petrol.

Rationing in Britain during World War 2

To make the British weak, the Germans tried to cut off supplies of food and other goods. German submarines attacked many of the ships that brought food to Britain. Before the war, Britain imported 55 million tons of food, a month after the war had started this figure had dropped to 12 million. The Ration Book became the key to survival for nearly every household in Britain. Every member of the public was issued with a ration book. Ration Books They were books which contained coupons that shopkeepers cut out or signed when people bought food and other items. War Campaigns and Posters. The Blitz. The Blitz was a German bombing campaign against Britain in 1940 and 1941, during the Second World War.

The Blitz

The term was first used by the British press and is the German word for 'lightning'.[4] The Germans conducted mass air attacks against industrial targets, towns, and cities, beginning with raids on London towards the end of the Battle of Britain in 1940, a battle for daylight air superiority between the Luftwaffe and the Royal Air Force over the United Kingdom. By September 1940, the Luftwaffe had failed and the German air fleets (Luftflotten) were ordered to attack London, to draw RAF Fighter Command into a battle of annihilation.[5][6] Adolf Hitler and Reichsmarschall Hermann Göring, commander-in-chief of the Luftwaffe, ordered the new policy on 6 September 1940.

From 7 September 1940, London was systematically bombed by the Luftwaffe for 56 out of the following 57 days and nights.[7] Most notable was a large daylight attack against London on 15 September.

World War 2 Chronology - Historic UK

A truly world war, it was fought throughout Europe, Russia, North Africa, and across the Atlantic and Pacific seaboards. It is estimated that some 55 million lives were lost in total, including 20 million Russians and in excess of 6 million Jews killed in the holocaust. The origins of the war are attributed to Germany’s reluctance to accept the geographic frontiers previously agreed at the ‘Treaty of Versailles’ following World War I, and to the aggressive foreign policy of the then German Chancellor, Adolf Hitler. Returning from Munich in 1938 with the above agreement bearing both his and Adolf Hitler’s signatures, Neville Chamberlain believed he had secured peace: ‘I believe it is peace for our time’.
