A unique way to experience the history of London during the Blitz of World War II through seven leisurely and informative walks. In Walking the London Blitz, Clive Harris guides you on a highly informative tour through one of World War II's most pivotal and devastating military campaigns. By means of seven easily manageable walks and accompanying maps and photographs, anyone-from history buffs to tourists to seasoned armchair travelers-can experience the significant sites of those dark days when the German Luftwaffe relentlessly bombed Great Britain between 1940 and 1941. Some of the walking tours include: Bank Station to London Bridge Station; Ludgate Circus to Trafalgar Square; Marble Arch to the Cabinet War Rooms; Hyde Park Corner to Westminster; and London Bridge to St. Paul's. Using rich anecdotes and first-hand accounts, the suffering and bravery of ordinary Britons in the face of Hitler's V-weapon attacks comes to life.
