Description - Forgotten Voices of the Blitz and the Battle For Britain by Joshua Levine
Following on from the success of Forgotten Voices of the Great War, Joshua Levine has compiled an extraordinary account of airborne warfare using the Imperial War Museums extensive archive. In June 1940, British citizens prepared for the coming German invasion. Once Hitler s troops had overrun Holland, Belgium and France in quick succession, British citizens anticipated the war that would soon be upon them. From July to September, they watched the Battle of Britain play out in the skies above them, aware that the result would decide their fate. Over the next nine months, the Blitz killed more than 43,5000 of them. For a year, the citizens of Britain were effectively front line soldiers. From Dunkirk and the Battle of Britain, to Black Saturday on 8th September 1940, when the Luftwaffe turned its attentions on London kick starting the Blitz, this will be the oral history of a period when Britain came closer to being overwhelmed than at any time in history.
