Summary
At the outbreak of World War II, London suddenly found itself on the front line. While aerial attacks had played a part in World War I, the astounding technological advances since meant that by 1939 the city was threatened like never before. The attacks took a brutal toll. Almost 19,000 tons of bombs were dropped on the capital, and nearly 30,000 civilians were killed. The Blitz forever changed the landscape of the city, damaging iconic buildings like Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament, the Tower of London, and even the Imperial War Museums, while, in some areas, whole neighbourhoods were all but wiped out. This book tells the story of those momentous years in London's history through the unparalleled archives of Imperial War Museums
