The introduction provides an overview of the British Second World War propaganda effort from the outbreak of war in September 1939 to the fall of France in June 1940, set alongside the military events. It introduces the concept of using propaganda as a means to continue the war after Dunkirk and some of the issues facing the organisation for propaganda set up by the British government to do so. It discusses the importance and nature of France as a target for British propaganda, and highlights, broadly, what British propaganda had to achieve. The introduction closes with a brief synopsis of the main chapters.
