Volume 2 September 7, 1940 – May 1941

The day-by-day, blow-by-blow account of the Night Blitz. Beginning with the first mass raid on London on September 7, 1940, the story is continued through the winter of 1940–41 with Ken Wakefield's masterly description of Luftwaffe operations over Britain. The result of over fifteen years of study and research, his 150,000-word account of each night's operations over Britain brings into focus for the first time the full details of the escalating attacks as one raid exceeded another in size, damage or deaths. Every German crash on land is listed with its crew, and footnotes are included on all those which are known to have been investigated or excavated since the end of the war, together with photographs of some of the more interesting discoveries. Over twenty features and special articles by historians and eyewitnesses intersperse the daily happenings, illustrating life at the time on both the civilian and Service fronts, and contrasting descriptions by German airmen give us an insight into just what it was like to be on the other side. A unique record of a period which changed the face of Britain and cost the lives of 40,000 of her people.
