War wasn't just sending soldiers off and forgetting that you were in a war because you were not affected, it was real sacrifices. In your backyard kinda stuff. I recommend this video to everyone.
Reality show. A couple, their daughter and two grandchildren volunteer to spend several weeks living under wartime conditions. That includes clothing, learning to live with rationing (12 ounces of candy a month, 4 ounces of ham a week etc) and digging up the back yard partly for extra vegetables and partly for an "Anderson" air raid shelter. Several historians and "experts" formed a War cabinet to direct events, and push the family went through 6 years of war in those weeks.
