Reviews

`A wonderful account of how Lord Woolton, Minster for Food, managed to keep Britain fed during World War Two... a riveting read full of delicious historical details about how one unassuming man battled against all odds to keep bellies full and morale high despite the dreaded food rationing. Excuse the pun, but I could have eaten this book up with a spoon' * Red Magazine * `Fascinating biography' -- Andrew Marr * Radio 4 Start the Week * `Eggs or Anarchy meticulously completes the backstory of the war. In this absorbing book Sitwell proves Woolton's genuine intentions, absolves him for his tough line and also presents a portrait of a man whose style and approach to problems is still highly instructive. It is often said that generally the British were never healthier than in the war years. How we need a Woolton now' -- Rose Prince * The Spectator * `Eggs or Anarchy is as much a beguiling study of social mobility as it is a hard war memoir ... there is much to enjoy - with barely a powdered egg in sight - in this biography of the man who was responsible for arguably the healthiest national diet of all time' -- Sinclair McKay * Sunday Telegraph * `The battles of the Second World War have been pored over in minute detail; not so the battles waged on the Kitchen Front. The food writer William Sitwell's account of Lord Woolton, the man in charge of the Ministry of Food during the war, is an entertaining corrective to this.' * The Times *
