Ministry of Defence

Newsdesk Media worked with the Ministry of Defence (MOD) to produce Thanks For Our Future, a special commemorative publication to mark the 60th anniversary of the end of the Second World War.

The soldiers on the front line. The families at the home front. People from all backgrounds, young and old, fought for the way of life we enjoy today.

Thanks For Our Future remembers all those who endured the 'people's war' and looks at Britain as a whole during the war years – from war-time fashion and rationing, to the political decisions and military technology that propelled Britain to victory.

Launched on 10 July 2005 at the official 60th anniversary commemoration event at Horse Guards Parade, London, this official commemorative publication is an historical account of war-time Britain that can be enjoyed by all ages.
