The Blitz: The British Under Attack - Juliet Gardiner

So I went with Gardiner's book on the Blitz, and it's proving to be an excellent read. After describing the first attack on 7 September she is now describing the issue of the shelters, and the contrast between official expectations and the reality for the people in them. So much interesting stuff!
