Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent resource of information regarding the actions and results of Axis sorties and bombings on U.K. soil between September 1940 and May 1941.

Contained within this sturdy hardback is a chronological account of all recorded raids, crashes and wartime anecdotes of the time, throughout the British Isles. Every page contains detailed listings, maps, illustrations and photo's of aircraft and blitz scenes up and down the country, often with images showing the very same scene as it looks today. This is a real page turner, with something for everyone to appreciate.

There's a very detailed index and a useful source of photograph credits, listed. However, my only criticism is the lack of a Bibliography, as result, creative use of the Acknowledgements and photograph credits are as near as you'll get to finding out the sources. Otherwise, this is a remarkable volume, and a total joy to read.

This book is an essential read for anyone researching wartime activities over the U.K. and anyone interested in aviation and the Second World War in general. A must for any bookshelf.

Perfect for Completists 17 Jan. 2012
By richievee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a brilliant chronicle of the Blitz, a book that is fascinating in its wealth of detail. You will not find a more thorough daily account of London under siege and the devastating effects of German bombing raids during the Battle of Britain. Although clearly not intended to be digested in a single read-through, this fine book merits high praise as an invaluable reference source for the pivotal weeks of 7 September 1940 to 11 May 1941. Chillingly objective in its statistical presentation, "The Blitz: Then and Now" indirectly serves as a paean to the bravery of civilian Londoners and the heroic efforts of the city's fire brigades.
