5.0 out of 5 stars COMPELLING READING - UNPUTDOWNABLE, 8 Sep 2005
This review is from: The Longest Night: Voices from the London Blitz (Hardcover)
This is one of those books you just CANNOT put down. It is a truly wonderful account of all different walks of life - weaving in and out of each others lives climaxing in the fateful "longest night" of bombing. It is funny, witty, charming and very poignant. I really loved this. It has everything you could wish for. My dad lived through the first "blitz" in September 1940 as a 15 year old lad in silvertown. He is reluctant to speak about the horrors of his house and possessions being wiped out. My grandad was a fireman for india rubba gutta percha company and was not seen for three days (on fire duty) - this book is absolutely compelling to me as I am also absorbed in family history as well. Thank you Mr Gavin Mortimer.
