"This slender, almost pamphlet-sized book is chock-full of British modernism of the 1940s, with plenty of photographs and an erudite text... authors Paul Evans and Peter Doyle, an antiques dealer and a military historian who usually work together on Shire's books about World War II, have given this volume an informative, well-researched text that flows along with the photographs." -Sandy McLendon, Modernism Magazine
