Product description


The meticulously hand-coloured bomb damage maps of London - in pictures. --The Guardian

A handsome folio ... their [the maps'] utility has been hugely enhanced by presentation in this new format, spacious, scholarly and visually compelling. --Times Literary Supplement

This A-Z of atrocity - which includes 70 stunning photographs of the ruined City - has a terrible beauty. --Evening Standard, Books of the Year

Amazingly compelling. --Country & Town House

Though there is no florid prose or gripping anecdotes, these maps are not mute. This A-Z of destruction tells a powerful story.--The Times

'Beautifully designed, with all illustrations, be they the maps, old documents or the photographs are reproduced to the absolute highest standard … a pleasure to handle and all of the pages lay perfectly flat,' --Reference Reviews

An amazing visual record of what happened to London in the war ... fascinating. --Timeout

The book is immaculately presented and is an essential part of any London-phile's coffee table book collection. --Mapping London

‘Astonishing.’ -- William Boyd’s book of the year, Times Literary Supplement
