Often heartbreaking, sometimes humorous, personal stories are included in this book along with detailed factual research from recognised sources.
Many residents of Merseyside lost their lives during both conflicts both in active combat and as a result of the heavy bombing inflicted on Merseyside during the blitz.
As one of Britain's largest cities and a strategic sea port, Liverpool was heavily targeted during the second world war. The blitz of Liverpool isn't something mentioned too much in the media, when the subject of the second world war is featured, nor is it adequately represented in documentaries or indeed fictional representation of the war. Much more is reported and featured about the London blitz. This book more than redresses the balance.
An absorbing, fascinating read full of facts and personal stories, tragedy, hardship and courage, author Anthony Hogan has preserved the memory of many Merseyside men, women and children caught up in two terrible conflicts during the history of the 20th Century. I really hope to read more from this author. Anthony Hogan has certainly emerged as one of the best historians of Merseyside history in recent times.
