Description
Southampton, the major port on the southern coast of England from which Titanic sailed, received some of the most ferocious German bombing in World War II. From Gwen Hughes's memory of being buried in the rubble of a ruined bomb shelter—she and her children were the only survivors—to a photo of a clergyman performing a wedding in the bombed-out remains of St. Mary's Church, this is a gripping and indelible account of how the city weathered the 1940 Blitz. Journalist and social historian Andrew Bissell gathers harrowing recollections from the citizens who endured their world exploding around them. The book is heavily illustrated throughout with archival photos and personal snapshots, and Bissell also provides selected "where they are now" profiles of those whose stories he presents.
