For a very brief introduction to popular newspaper coverage of WWII - including the films that were box office favourites during the Blitz and details of how Blackpool and Wolverhampton Wanderers competed with Arsenal and Everton in the League Championship - follow this link to the site I mentioned in our seminar. You will find out which newspaper asked "What would have happened if Hitler had married Mae West?"

 And who wrote features advising women "how to help with the war effort and stay beautiful at the same time." Plus which politician told the 1945 electorate "I stand for the rights of the Common Man"
