Taking an unique look at how Britain survived the bombing of its major cities, "The Blitz - A Very Peculiar History" tells a story of blackouts, Bletchley Park and bravery during the darkest (literally) period of World War II.

From Dunkirk to Dad's Army, explore the many ways in which Britain tried to foil the incoming bomber planes, featuring quirky stories and fascinating trivia about this period of history.

Were German paratroopers really dropped disguised as nuns?

Find out the answer to this question and many more even more bizarre ones throughout the course of this amazing tale of survival in the face of adversity.

Fact boxes, a full glossary and index make the book both fun and informative to use.

The text is enlivened with black-and-white line drawings and full-colour endpapers.
