Blitz by Margaret Gaskin
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The image of St Paul's amid clouds of black smoke immediately became the ultimate symbol of Britain's Blitz defiance. But the reality of this night, in all its unprecedented destruction and indomitable humanity, is almost lost amid myth and counter-myth.Now, in a stunningly vivid and immediate work of historical storytelling, M J Gaskin tells the story of London's desperate hours. And Blitz shows how, across the Atlantic, Americans agonised over the cost of aiding Britain's struggle against the Nazis - and the cost of letting her fall.
