survival during the london blitz,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: World War ll London Blitz Diary (A Woman's Revelations Enduring War and Marriage) (1939-1940) (Kindle Edition)
this is a very self centered account in harrowing circumstances.
A very fortunate woman who is materialy very well endowed. She hates (yes hates) her husband but recognizes the physoical benenfits of love. At the same time terrified by the war and as a result hates men. The conflict with her Catholic religion is very revealing as her husnnd is an ardent attender of the local church community.
A very long winded but detailed of life in south est london with timings of air raid warnings and all clears almost neurotially obsessional.The diary is an escape from reality but an outlet for reconsidering her beliefs. She wishes to return to America where she was happy but turns down the oportunity for reasons which not clear.
A tedios detailled diary which reflects physicall dificulties and ethical problems at a very life threatening time.
I shall read the next one !.
