On 10th May 1941, the Germans launched their deadliest raid of the Blitz. The target was London. By the time it was over, the House of Commons lay in ruins and only Marylebone station was functioning.
Cracks began to emerge in the “Blitz Spirit”, as tighter rationing and defeats abroad caused a loss of confidence in Churchill’s Government. But in 1942, a major victory at El Alamein gave the country a chance to rejoice.
Using rare archive film, this is the story of life in the war – told by those who were there.
