London Blitz: BBC Retrospective

BBC News Magazine has a great pictoral review of the Nazi bombing of London from the autumn of 1940 to the spring of 1941.

It's the 75th anniversary of the blitz which killed over 43,000 people as the Germans tried to gain air superiority over the British.

"The Germans tried to disrupt imports of food - and docks in places like Plymouth, Liverpool, and Belfast were targeted," according to the story."

The Imperial War Museum also has a good retrospective in association with Horrible Histories.

My thanks to my colleague, James Dahlgren, for sending me the link.
