The Blitz Companion by Mark Clapson, published

UWP’s latest history title is published. A great resource for lecturers, students and general readers Mark Clapson reflects on civilian experience of that now dominant form of warfare, bombing, from the point at which it was feared and anticipated to recent times including efforts of memorialisation and reconstruction.

He discusses the debate around the ‘myth of the blitz’, the experience of London’s suburbs and the mythologies and actuality of civilian response. And there are useful links to the best sources for further study.
