In the 1950s numerous books about the, then, recent conflict were published. In the non-fiction category, many were military history tomes about campaigns but many more were individuals’ accounts of wartime experiences. There was also a range of novels and while, these books’ first editions were often hardback, there were also booming sales of the paperback editions. The illustrated covers from that era have a distinct charm and hint at what is inside.
