Where the Title Keep Calm and Carry On Comes From. 

1939 was a dark and savage year in Europe. Hitler and the Nazi army had Annexed Austria and Czechoslovakia and on September 1, Hitler launched his blitzkrieg attack on Poland. 2 Days later France and Great Britain declared war on Germany.

World War II had begun. The title of this book and the small crown are based upon a motivational poster published by the British government that same year. Long forgotten, a copy of the poster was found in a used bookstore in Northumberland, England, in 2000.
The poster has since become a popular, even iconic message of resilience in the face of adversity. Simple, reassuring, and inspiring, it remains an encouraging sentiment in difficult time. – Keep Calm and Carry On excerpt –
