Plymouth at War

(Häftad)
Beskrivning:

During the Second World War, Plymouth suffered some of the worst Blitz damage in the country. Bustling streets such as Bedford Street, George Street and Old Town Street were totally destroyed, while popular stores including Dingles, Pophams, Boots and Woolworths were reduced to rubble. Casualties were high, yet the people of Plymouth kept their spirits up with concerts and regular dances held on the Hoe. Illustrated with over 220 archive photographs and documents, "Plymouth at War" offers a unique record of the wartime history of Plymouth. This volume documents aspects of everyday life during this time, from the destruction of homes by enemy bombing and air-raid casualties, to the trials of rationing and evacuation, and recalls the people who lived in and defended the city during those dangerous years.
