I Don't Want to Set the World on Fire archiveFilled with laughter and tears and bursting with the music of the 1940s, it was written with the help of the 'Roses of Swynnerton', the brave women who worked at a Staffordshire munitions factory in WW2. It is their story. When war is declared in September 1939, the lives of Stoke-on-Trent's Beresford family are changed forever. With brother Harry off in the army and Dad building Anderson shelters and digging for victory, 17 year-old Lily is called up for war-work in a munitions factory, the most dangerous job on the home front. Together with thousands of ordinary women living in extraordinary times, Lily learns the lessons of life, love and loss, meets happiness and tragedy, and looks forward to the war's end and the hope of a new world.
