5.0 out of 5 stars Zeppelin Nights: London in the First World War
I’ve read another book by this author on London in the Eighteenth Century. This book follows a similar format, telling the life of London and its people during a particular period, in this case from 1914 through to 1918, the time of the First World War. It’s fascinating to learn how Londoners coped first with the shock of the news of the War, and then how...

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting angle on London at war.
Enjoyable social history. A tad academic in style, but clearly very well researched. The resilience of London and Londoners shines through this work.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lot of new insights to the war, 22 May 2014

This really was a most interesting read. A huge amount of information and interpretation about the conditions in London during the war. A good read for most of us who tend to think WW1 primarily affected those fighting overseas.

5.0 out of 5 stars So much change in the blinking of an eye, almost., 9 July 2014

This review is from: Zeppelin Nights: London in the First World War (Hardcover)
London is not just a place, not just its people,not just its infer-structure.
In his previous three books on London Jerry White showed us all that and more besides. For this his forth book he has shown us some of the Sorrow's, upheavals and turmoil of Londoners and their reactions to life during World War One.
The war challenged and hit hard the cosiness of the Edwardian sunshine life style. And it brought most Londoners crying and hurt into the twenty-th century, with damages that would not be healed before another war was upon London.If you had gone into a coma in 1914 as it started and awoke as peace was signed you would of seen great change and would have been greatly shocked.

4.0 out of 5 stars WW1 From a Londoner's Perspective, 23 May 2014

This review is from: Zeppelin Nights: London in the First World War (Hardcover)
Am currently reading this as it has only just hit my bookshelves, but it certainly paints a picture of the way Londoners from all walks of life faced up to not only bombing by Germany, but also daily and nightly life from 1914 to 1918. Very promising.

Wonderful book about a little known episode of the First World War. So curious that it has not been spoken about more.
