The Audit of War: The Illusion and Reality of Britain as a Great Nation by Correlli Barnett

Correlli Barnett described his Audit or War as an 'operational study' to 'uncover the causes of Britain's protracted decline as an industrial country since the Second World War.' First published in 1986, the book swiftly became one of the most controversial and influential historical works of its time.

'[The Audit of War] argued that British industry during the Second World War was scandalously inefficient, a situation Barnett blamed on an establishment more concerned with welfare than with industry, technology or the capacity of the nation to fight a war... Alan Clark records approvingly that Mrs Thatcher herself read it...' David Edgerton, London Review of Books

'A stimulating polemic.' Times Literary Supplement

'A formidable book, essential reading.' Asa Briggs, Financial Times
