About this store
The War Years (1939-1945) is wholly dedicated to the history, horror, courage and fortitude of those who experienced the monumental events of the Second World War (WW2). Today, as the war years retreat beyond living memory, nostalgia for the period is alive and well in a whole new generation. Living History A Battle of Britain aerial dogfight; the thundering menace of a Tiger tank; the biting cold, monstrous waves and gnawing fear of the Atlantic convoys. All these images, memories and sounds remain. The War Years brings this history vividly to life by linking the digital and real worlds to create an inspiring, informative and fun range of unique products.
