DESCRIPTION: This addition to the series of town & city military history of 
WWII looks at Hull. This is proving a very popular history and deservedly so. – 
Highly Recommended

Hull was a prime target for German bombing. Hull, perhaps surprisingly for some 
readers, was, after London, the most heavily bombed British town in WWII. The 
bombing of London, Portsmouth and Coventry stand out in most minds as the most 
bombed towns and cities but it should come as no surprise that Hull was so heavily 
bombed. On the East Coast it was a relatively short distance for German bombers, 
easily identified by day or by night, and a port with war industries.

The authors have provided a detailed review of Hull's experiences. There are many 
photographs in illustration of their able text. They have also listed casualties, 
providing a graphic presentation of the harrowing conditions through which the 
population survived in determination.

As with other books in the series, this must have a special interest for those who 
live in the area and those whose families survived the bombing. It will also appeal 
for those interested in understanding the extent of total war experienced in Britain, 
where every part was in the front line and where civilians and troops were equally 
engaged in fighting Nazi Germany.
