1940: Britain’s Finest Hour
The momentous events that occurred during 1940 determined the eventual outcome of the Second World War. It was the year that saw the creation of the Ministry of Food and the instigation of rationing. Britain’s great wartime leader, Winston Churchill, came to power. Britain’s armed forces endured the fall of France, the evacuation of Dunkirk, and the Battle of Britain, while on the home front, the unrelenting bombing of the Blitz began to hit many cities and towns across the country.
All branches of the Imperial War Museum will commemorate the 70th anniversary of this crucial year with a range of special exhibitions, events and newly arranged exhibits from the Museum’s core collections. To bring everyone closer to the events of 1940, the Imperial War Museum has created a dedicated website with information on all of its anniversary activity, plus dynamic online content telling the full story of Britain’s finest hour.
