Inhaltsangabe: The day-to-day, blow-by-blow account of the Night Blitz. Beginning with the first mass raid on London on September 7th, 1940, the story is continued through the winter of 1940-41 with the description of Luftwaffe operations over Britain. The author's account of each night's operations brings into focus the details of the escalating attacks as one raid exceeded another in size, damage or deaths. Every German crash on land is listed with its crew, and footnotes are included on all those which are known to have been investigated or excavated since the end of the war, together with photographs of discoveries. Over twenty features and special articles by historians and eyewitnesses intersperce the daily happenings, illustrating life at the time on both the civilian and Service fronts, and contrasting descriptions by German airmen give the reader an insight into what it was like to be on the other side. The book presents a record of a period which changed the face of Britain and cost the lives of 40,000 on her people.
