Население Британии было мобилизовано для поддержки военных усилий в масштабах, невиданных для любой другой Западной демократии. Долгие рабочие смены, нехватка продовольствия и других товаров, и полного государственного контроля над повседневной жизнью. Большинство мужчин и женщин были мобилизованы или добровольно выполняли дополнительные работы за пределами их официальных обязанностей.
