Kitted Out Style and Youth Culture in the Second World War

Kitted Out Style and Youth Culture in the Second World War

Author: Caroline Young Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 03/08/2020

When war was declared in September 1939, young people around the world were expected to put on a uniform and fight in a conflict not of their making. They may have been dressed in regulation khaki or air force blue, or restricted by rationing, but driven by angst, patriotism and survival, they took every opportunity to express themselves by adapting their clothing. Away from the war their lives were shaped by swing music and its fashions, allowing individualism to flourish despite repression and offering a rebellious reaction to the fearful sound of jackboots marching in unison. It was a time of new identities, factions and hierarchies. From the British Tommies and the American GIs, to the 'Glamour Boys' of the RAF, the 'Spitfire Girls' of the ATA and members of the French Resistance, Kitted Out is a fresh take on the history of the Second World War through a fashionable eye. The poignant and inspiring stories behind the uniforms, styles and self-expression in Britain, the United States, North Africa and occupied Europe will be painfully resonant to a new generation of young people.

Roman Holiday The Secret Life of Hollywood in Rome

Roman Holiday The Secret Life of Hollywood in Rome

Author: Caroline Young Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 01/06/2020

Rome in the 1950s: following the recovery from fascism and Nazi occupation during the Second World War, the city is reinvigorated. The street cafes and nightclubs are filled with movie stars and film directors as Hollywood productions flock to the city to film at Cinecitta Studios. Fiats and Vespas throng the streets, and the newly christened paparazzi mingle with tourists enjoying la dolce vita. It is a time of beauty, glamour - and more than a little scandal. Caroline Young explores the city in its golden age, as the emergence of celebrity journalism gave rise to the ultimate film icons: Ava Gardner, Anna Magnani, Sophia Loren, Audrey Hepburn, Ingrid Bergman and Elizabeth Taylor. Set against the backdrop of the stunning Italian capital, the story follows their lives and loves on and off the camera, and the legendary films that marked their journeys. From the dark days of the Second World War through to the hedonistic hippies in the late 1960s, this evocative narrative captures the essence of Rome - its beauty, its tragedy and its creativity - through the lives of those who helped to recreate it.
