This is the most amazing book. I had been looking for some time for a book about a history of the ordinary people of London during the Blitz in World War II and this is perfect.
Except for 9/11 I wonder how Americans who had never been bombed by an enemy country would have reacted and I hope it would be as the British did. They took care of business, saw it as a cause, most sheltered at night when the raids were conducted but some did not. They also kept their lives as normal as possible under a very abnormal situation.
I came away from this book with a greater understanding of what the citizens of London went through and with a greater respect for their trials and gallantry than before.
