Book Summary:

An incredible true coming-of-age story In 1938, eighteen-year-old Phyllis Ellsworth packs her bags, says goodbye to her anxious parents and sets off from her quiet seaside home for the Hackney Hospital in London's bustling East End, where she is to fulfill her dream to train as a nurse. At first, it is a whirlwind of long days, hard work, new friends and plenty of mischief, but just ten months later Britain declares war on Germany and life at the hospital is transformed. Phyll's days become an endless cycle of air-raid sirens, injured servicemen and anxiously waiting for news of loved ones. And when she falls in love with a handsome young solider, Alistair, Phyll's work provides the only distraction from worrying about his safety. Bandaging the Blitz is a true story of coming-of-age in terrible times, of the blossoming of first romance into a life-long love affair, and of a young woman whose eagerness to do good in the world brought her suddenly face-to-face with death and drama in all its many guises.

Book Summary:

By June 1940 Britain faced the enemy across the English Channel with annxious sense that very little kept her from being subjugated by theverwhelming might of the Nazi forces. What rescued the country was the Royalir Force's triumph in the Battle of Britain, and the encouragement andndurement of the people who lived, worked and suffered under the Luftwaffe'slitz which, almost nightly from September 1940 until May 1941, rainedestruction upon London and other major cities - only to do so again in laterampaigns that culminated in the launching of the Nazis' V1 and V2 'revengeeapons'. Based on eyewitness reminiscences, The Battle of Britain and thelitz relives those desperate times in the words of pilots, ground crew andther airmen and airwomen, firefighters, air-raid wardens, radar operators,potters, anti-aircraft gunners, Red Cross, YMCA and other voluntary workers,nd civilians - old and young, male and female - who between them helped tonsure that Britain survived to fight another day and, ultimately, to win.

Book Summary:

The historian Carol Harris has collected together a remarkable series of accounts from the war's darkest days, with heart-warming stories of survival, perseverance, solidarity and bravery, the preservation of which becomes increasingly important as the Blitz fades from living memory. War with Germany seemed increasingly likely throughout the 1930s. The British Government and the general population believed that bombs and poison gas would be dropped on civilians in major towns and cities with the aim of terrifying them into surrendering. Today the Blitz, far from breaking civilian morale, is seen as achieving the opposite; it helped galvanise public opinion to carry on fighting the war. But in 1937, preparations to protect the population were hopelessly inadequate, and the British government was far from confident that people would respond in this way.
