"Fires Were Started", Paperback


This work suggests that Humphrey Jennings' re-enacted documentary about the London Blitz, "Fires Were Started", is an understated propaganda masterpiece.

It provides an account of how Jennings recaptured the reality of the Blitz for his cumbersome camera through a process of meticulous research.
