Editorial Reviews

In this 7-part documentary, award-winning director Peter Williams (Secret Army) unearths the stories of people in wartime Britain who got away with everything from murder to looting, theft, profiteering and espionage. The German Luftwaffe blasted the buildings of Britain's cities into rubble, creating an ideal hiding place for homicide victims among the many genuine victims of the blitz. Rationing was established to manage the nation's consumption of food, goods and fuel, but scarcity drove many law-abiding citizens to the black market. Seen through archival footage and interviews with people who were there, WWII Crimes on the British Home Front is an important, riveting record of wartime crime and human ingenuity.

3.0 out of 5 stars Tells it like it was. November 22, 2011

I liked this DVD. It has good information on what it was like to live in England during the war. The actual film and people that lived during that time made you feel as if you were there.

Very! very entertaining. Just delightful even. Lots and lots of views on earlier-in-the-century London streets, many that I had never seen before. The people and their crimes were well-told and interesting. A great Yank's tour of the British home front 70 years ago and earlier.
