Praise

"Ambitious, compelling, fascinating."
THE GUARDIAN (UK)

"Every now and again a book comes along that tranforms our understanding of a subject that had previously seemed so well-worn and familiar. That is the measure of LIzzie Collingham’s achievement in this outstanding global account of the role played by food (and its absense) during the Second World War. It will now be impossible to think of the war in the old way."
Richard Overy, LITERARY REVIEW

"Fascinating… After this book, no historian will be able to write a comprehensive history of the Second World War without putting the multifarious issues of food production and consumption centre stage." 
Andrew Roberts, FINANCIAL TIMES

"Lizzie Collingham’s book possesses the notable virtue of originality… [She] has gathered many strands to pursue an important theme across a global canvas. She reminds us of the timeless truth that all human and political behaviour is relative."
Max Hastings, THE SUNDAY TIMES

“An important, original contribution”
Booklist

“A definitive work of World War II scholarship.”
Kirkus
