Description

During the blitz on London in 1941, a sailor on leave couldn’t wait to get back to his ship. “At least there,” he said, “you can fire back at an enemy, but poor bloody civilians just have to sit there and take it.” Throughout the Second World War, some 65,000 English civilians died from German bombing of one type or another. Twice that number were injured and thousands suffered psychological trauma as a result of the conflict that lasted six years. This book is a fictionalised account of the experiences of one young civilian during that period.show more
