Product Description

Publisher: Osprey Publishing

Author: Jaqueline Mitchell

As the bombs began to fall in September 1940, as homes were flattened and people emerged from cramped shelters and sleepless nights into barely recognisable streets, something very British happened - the Blitz Spirit was born. Amazingly the terrors of bombing inspired the best in ordinary people, without whose pluck, patriotism and humor the war could never have been won. This book collects the best examples of the Blitz Spirit which - with Churchill's inspiration - got Britain through its darkest hour. Compiled by Jaqueline Mitchell into a fun and flippable format, the witty voices and colorful images in this book show the best of the British character and are an inspiration for whenever times are hard.
