"We were dumped at a roundabout with our labels on. People pulled and tugged at the children they wanted. It was a bit like a cattle market... people just waded in. I went with a lady and her daughter - she was like a second Mum." --Alexander King, evacuated aged eleven.Based on the stories of thirteen children and adults, Churchill's Children tells the often moving story of the evacuation of schoolchildren in Britain during the Second World War, from the first mass evacuations of 1939 through to the lesser-known but equally important evacuations of 1940 and 1944.John Welshman skilfully captures the experience of evacuation - the happiness or sadness, excitement or boredom, resentment or acceptance, love or abuse that the children experienced during their time away from home. Along the way, the book addresses some of the fundamental questions raised by evacuation. How were relationships between children and parents affected by the long periods apart? What happened when brothers and sisters were separated? And how did the children feel when they went home? But the book looks at the adults too - at how the officials in charge of billeting and teachers got caught up in events, and at how civil servants and researchers became involved in the ensuing debates. As Welshman shows, the evacuation was to have a significant impact on shaping attitudes in the post-war world to everything from reconstruction and state intervention to poverty, social class, and the welfare state. However, the analysis aside, what this book perhaps offers above all is a highly evocative portrait of a very different Britain, reminding us just how much has changed in the seventy years since the Second World War.

I read to find how the children coped and found that it sounded that they did fairly well - some better than others. Lice was a terrible problem. Many came from poor areas and had better conditions living away - some were worked hard and did not like the experience
I did not read this book completely as it is very wordy and extremely long.

In this engrossing book, John Welshman examines the evacuation through the eyes of those personally involved and, as a result, the book is extremely succcessful in bringing the story of the evacuation alive. He skillfully captures the evacuee experience whilst at the same time showing how this impacted on geographical and class divides, and how the evacuation shaped post war Britain. He allows the children's and adults' voices to come through to describe their personal experiences, which is very effective and frequently emotional. He describes the general confusion and emotional scenes which ensued as the children were selected by local families - indeed the Head teacher of his story, Judith, 'mislaid' her own baby soon after her arrival in the reception area. Welshman also examines the situation of evacuated Mothers, a group of evacuees that has received less attention from historians than the evacuated children. Family separation is examined, including the experiences of the children when they returned home again. He shows that some children had difficulty settling back into family life, and that they had mixed reactions to their home environments. He also makes the important point that evacuation would not happen today "because changes in the way that child abuse has been exposed mean that children would never be sent away to live with strangers". This is a book that will interest people from all walks of life who are interested in the story of WW2 evacuation
