This book makes for a fascinating read, consisting of the stories of six contributors - people who were 'ARP' volunteers in the Second World War. Together with information on why 'Air-Raid Precautions' was set up, the book provides details on the work the volunteers were expected to do - from distributing gas masks and firewatching to rescuing survivors from the devastation of the Blitz. It provides an intriguing look at the way of life experienced by real people in wartime Britain. It is complete with colour and black and white photographs, a glossary and an index.
