RRP: £20.00

The West End Front offers a glimpse into life behind the closed doors of some of London’s most prestigious hotels during the Second World War. The stories of spies and exiles are captivating – told through accounts from those who lived through it, the anecdotes help portray a unique view of a more glamorous side to the home front. A great deal of research and background to every character is included within the book, which at times can be a bit overwhelming, sending the reader somewhat off topic. This, of course, is counterbalanced by the quite extraordinary tales of an underground elite during one of the most pivotal moments in Britain’s history.
