Description

As the bombs began to fall in September 1940, as homes were flattened and people emerged from cramped shelters and sleepless nights into barely recognizable 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. Witty and uplifting, the voices and images in this book show the best of the British character and are an inspiration for whenever times are hard. “Never surrender!”
