Book Description

30 Aug 1990
September 1940 marked the beginning of a concentrated campaign of German air raids on Britain's cities that was to last more than seven months. The Blitz, as it became known, claimed the lives of some 40,000 British civilians and left hundreds of thousands of others wounded, bereaved or homeless. Now, 50 years later, some of the survivors recall the time. Ben Wicks compiled the book by placing advertisements in newspapers throughout the world, asking those who lived through the Blitz to write to him with their memories. Thousands of people responded, and the book contains the most moving, evocative and amusing of these recollections which are woven into a poignant work of eyewitness history.

I bought the book as it contains the story of what happened to my own maternal grandmother and family. Desperately tragic stories but the real life stories of the Blitz.
