In the years after the end of WWII, a number of extraordinary changes took place in Britain. As post-war plans for rebuilding Britain were implemented, virtually every aspect of British life was affected. By the mid-1960s, Britain had, undergone a transformation; in many ways it was unrecognisable when compared to how it had been in the first half of the 20th Century. 'Rebuilding Britain’ covers this period of modern British history in-depth, starting with her involvement in the war. Other aspects of ‘rebuilding’ which are addressed include: initial rebuilding in the cities; the creation of the NHS and the Welfare State; how and why so many British Colonies became independent after the war; the ‘Windrush’ of immigration from the Caribbean to Britain; and the creation of 'New Towns’.
