DESCRIPTION: This original and superbly illustrated account of how London 
survived between 1940 and 1945 breaks new ground. Much has been written about 
London during WWII, but this is the first comprehensive account of how a new 
range of emergency services fought nature and the Luftwaffe and won. – Most 
Highly Recommended.


So much has been written about London during the Blitz, and then during the V weapons bombardment, and yet left so much out. This well researched account provides unique insights into the effects of heavy bombing, how essential services coped, and the consequences. Now eighty years on, pays tribute to the people who kept London and its docks running and saved London.

It is a remarkable story from a book that must be read.
