Educational and very well done

I did not expect to like this series, but it is so well researched and presented that it overcame my reservations in the first of the 16 episodes. The most fascinating aspect is hearing the views in their voice of the people who were the time. The Home Front is a very worthwhile listen. I disagree with the judgment of two of the reviewers that this audio book is leftist propaganda.
