WWII: Crimes on the British Home Front

2004 NR

This real-life counterpart to "Foyle's War" examines the difficulties faced by British law enforcement and ordinary citizens during World War II, when scarcity, fear and wily criminals brought about sharp increases in crimes from looting to murder. Archival footage and insightful interviews with the people who experienced it bring to life a desperate time when the chaos of a world at war could obscure even the most outrageous of local crimes.
