Life in the War: Part 2 - The Blitz DVD
Vendor: Box Set Shop
On 7th September 1940 more than eight hundred German aeroplanes flew up the Thames towards the docks. It was the opening salvo of the Blitz. For nine months the Luftwaffe brought terror to the nation's capital city wiping whole areas from the map. Water and gas supplies ceased to function and local governments struggled to cope as families were bombed out. Ordinary people faced this carnage with extraordinary courage and resilience. This terrifying period in our history is illustrated using rare archive film and told by those who were there.
