The Blitz (fiction and nonfiction)
Some photographs of streets and squares that were bombed — such as the Aldersgate area, which is now the Barbican — illustrate the truth of a past suddenly exposed. Beneath the rubble are exposed cellars, dank brickwork suddenly thrown into the light: layers of urban life. It seems astounding that so much was destroyed, but also that so much survived. It was not just London that suffered the onslaught of the Luftwaffe from September onwards. Juliet Gardiner is very good at focusing on the other towns and cities that were subjected to the remorseless inferno. She includes a full account of the extraordinary carnage: the gutting of Plymouth, the relentless pounding of Merseyside, the chaos wrought on Southampton.
