That the Blitz did not bring the UK to its knees is due, in large part, to a vast response by Civil Defence services and the British people themselves. During the war itself, some 1.5 million people took up duties in the Civil Defence (General) services, in roles ranging from air raid wardens to ambulance drivers to heavy rescue parties.
Heavily illustrated with primary source diagrams and photographs, The Blitz: Civil Defence Operations Manual provides a highly detailed insight into what it took to survive extraordinary circumstances.
This book is Hardback.
A highly detailed description of the preparations for the eventual bombing campaign against British cities, and the devastating effects. A balanced account of the endurance so many people. Parents and grandparents of today's generations, to whom we owe our existence, endured and overcame so many wartime events. So many of our forebears rarely spoke of their experiences, in later years. This book is a worthy eye-opener.
