The first day of the Blitz


On September 7, 1940 the long-feared and anticipated attack by the German Luftwaffe plunged London into a cauldron of fire and devastation. This book recreates that day in all its horror, using rich archival sources and first-hand accounts, many never before published. Eminent historian Peter Stansky weaves together the stories of people who recorded their experiences of the opening hours of the Blitz. Then. exploring more deeply, the author examines what that critical day meant to the nation at the tim,, and what it came to mean in following years.
