Vere Hodgson's wartime diary of her years living in London during the Blitz is really interesting. At the same time as it is an incredibly depressing record of destruction and death, but it is also an uplifting account of human endurance and tenacity. It's also interesting to see an un-PC account of the war: Vere's bias and prejudices probably explain a good deal why people were so eager to go to war a second time.
