All In thoroughly deserves its status as the standard reference for what it was really like to live in Australia during the Second World War. A fine account of how ordinary Australians on the home front coped with the pressures of total war. David Horner, author of Inside The War Cabinet and co-author of When The War Came To Australia. This is the story of the men, women and children at home during the second world war, and of their response to the extraordinary demands made on them by the circumstances of war. It is the story of individual and collective effort - of shortages and rationing, of long hours of hard work, of time given freely in voluntary labour. With a new introduction, the paperback edition of All In evokes the hardship and humour of wartime Australia. It is published for the 50th anniversary of the end of the war in the Pacific as part of the 'Australia Remembers' programme, to acknowledge the generation who lived through the war.
