When Daddy came home

£3.49

Product description

Published to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the end of World War II, this is the portrait of a generation of children affected by the war and its aftermath.;If you are aged between 50 and 55, you probably met your father for the first time when you were at least five years old. A whole generation of people alive today - the war babies - spent their early years, in some cases as many as eight, in what were effectively one-parent families. They have vivid memories of those childhood years and the often cataclysmic effect on them and their families when their fathers finally came home from the war.;This collection gives us their stories. Some joyful, some sad, they describe an extraordinary period of adjustment that took place throughout the country.;As a study of social history it provides many hitherto unexplored explanations for the shift in social attitudes today, providing clues to such changes as the post-war rise in feminism and the increased number of one-parent familes.

Wonder how this unique item ended up online?

Most of the second-hand items you see online have been donated, by supporters like you, to our high street stores. Each item is then priced, photographed and listed on this site by our amazing team of volunteers from across the country.

After you have bought your item, our team of volunteers package and dispatch it from the Shop straight to you or your chosen recipient.

All profits from the sales of our goods go towards funding Oxfam's work around the world. We rely on your donations to sell online so please keep the cycle of goodness going!

Oxfam Bookshop St Albans

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller, but it doesn't stop there. We sell a great range of donated music as well. Whether it's vintage LPs or the latest modern fiction you want, we're well worth a look! We also sell greetings cards for every occasion. And of course we have some great stock for sale on Oxfam's Online Shop, too. Call us to find out more.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
