Abstract

The extraordinary effort made by the British during the Second World War is only partially revealed by the two documents that follow, the first relating to manpower, the second to industrial plant. Relying on foreign supplies of many nonmilitary goods, the British devoted a huge amount of their productive capacity to wartime production. Between 1941 and 1944. more than half of British production went to meet the needs of war.
