Three further volumes of the United Kingdom Civil Series in the History of the Second World War. The first draws largely on Board of Trade documents for its exposition of British wartime trade policy. The second, somewhat more specialized, deals with government and industrial coöperation in the building program. The third, a comprehensive and authoritative history of the growth of the British munitions industry from the mid-thirties to the end of the war in 1945, complements the study on the British war economy by Hancock and Gowing.
