Product Description

From the Publisher

By comparing the wartime image to the
modern viewpoint this book gives the reader
a link to the city's experiences that mere
statistics can never convey.The book covers
not just famous landmarks like the Liver
Buildings but also ordinary houses, churches
and pubs. It will inspire anyone, whether local
or not to reflect on the sacrifice and bravery
of Liverpool people in the city's darkest hour.

About the Author

Neil Holmes was born on theWirral
in 1979 but now lives in Liverpool
where he also works as a civil servant.
He has studied military history for
fifteen years and the history of
Liverpool for five. His interest in local
history and photography led him to
research Liverpool's wartime experiences
at the city's record office. He
has spent the last two years gathering
wartime photographs and travelling
around the city taking modern
comparisons. He is the author of
an article on the Liverpool Blitz
which was recently published in the
After the Battle magazine.

This is an excellent book for anyone interested in the history of the British Home Front in World War Two. It contains many fascinating photographs and has clearly been carefully researched. I bought it for my Mum, who was born in Liverpool in April 1941. It really helped bring an understanding to what my Grandmother lived through.

Very informative and well researched book based on a 'then and now' theme.
There are no wide panoramic photos showing the blanket devastation of Liverpool seen in some other publications as this book instead concentrates in more detail on each area of the city by showing specific streets and buildings.
I feel that some of the photos could maybe have been of a better standard but overall its a very good source of information for those wanting to know what life was like in Liverpool during the blitz.
