Between September 1940 and May 1941, London was bombed nearly every night, with tens of thousands killed or wounded, and millions of homes destroyed or damaged. Night after night, the population of the world’s biggest city was forced into shelters, basements and tube stations as the Luftwaffe tried to destroy the city and the morale of its people.
In this online talk DON BROWN looks at the history of the Blitz, and its effect upon the capital’s buildings and population. We will also examine the other major raids across the UK and the ‘V’ weapon onslaught that hit London in the last year of the war.
It’s a story of fear, survival, and heroism, but there is so much more to it than the popular image of cheerful cockneys “keeping calm and carrying on”.
