In The Blitz – An Illustrated History, author Gavin Mortimer weaves together incredible images with newspaper articles, diary entries and first-hand accounts to create a compelling chronological account of Britain’s darkest and most difficult period in her long history.

Hi Paul,

Have you ever seen the magazine After The Battle? I wonder if they have ever done a story about V-1 / V-2 hits in London or other places?

hi,

yes i've got a "few" after the battle's, i have "the raid on rommel's hq", on my desk at the moment.
i've seen a few comparison pictures to do with flying bombs normally famous places in london, but i doubt if anyone has ever done them all.
i was at the national army museum in chelsea/london recently and they have a map of all the flying bomb hits.
