To All the Living IWM Wartime Classics

In January 1941 Griselda Green arrives at Blimpton, a place ‘so far from anywhere as to be, for all practical purposes, nowhere.’

Monica Felton’s 1945 novel gives a lively account of the experiences of a group of men and women working in a munitions factory during the Second World War. Wide-ranging in the themes it touches on, including class, sexism, socialism, fear of communism, workers’ rights, anti-semitism, and xenophobia, the novel gives a vivid portrayal of factory life and details the challenges, triumphs and tragedies of a diverse list of characters.

Adding another crucial female voice to the Wartime Classics series, To All the Living provides a fascinating insight into a vital aspect of Britain’s home front.

Paperback, 312 pages

Monica Felton (1906–1970) was a feminist, socialist, peace activist and a pioneering proponent of town planning. During the Second World War she served in the Ministry of Supply, on which her publications Civilian Supplies in Wartime Britain and her novel To All the Living are based.
