Synopsis

During the Second World War London was transformed into a European city, as it unexpectedly became a place of refuge for many thousands of European citizens who through choice or the accidents of war found themselves seeking refuge in Britain from the military campaigns on the Continent of Europe. Soldiers, prime ministers, monarchs, bureaucrats, women and children all found themselves thrust into the uncertainties and perils of existence in an unfamiliar culture. This phenomenon of European exile in Britain has hitherto been a neglected feature of historical research on the Second World War. In this innovative volume, an international team of historians consider the exile groups from Belgium, France, the Netherlands, Poland, Norway and Czechoslovakia.

Martin Conway is Fellow and Tutor in Modern History at Balliol College, Oxford University. Jose Gotovitch is Director of the Center for Historical Research and Documentation on War and Contemporary Society, Brussels.
