Synopsis

The Blitz by Stewart Ross

Published in association with the Imperial War Museum, this wonderful series uses primary source evidence such as diaries, posters, newspaper cuttings and oral accounts to portray life on the Home Front in a dramatically vivid manner, as well as comparing it with the experiences of civilians elsewhere. During World War 2, the Germans invented a new type of war called Blitzkrieg, which means 'lightning war'. To the British, who shortened the word to Blitz, it meant a heavy bomb attack on a town or city. The most famous was the London Blitz of 1940 to 1941. Where did people take shelter in an air raid, and how did they know when it was over? The Blitz will tell you the answer to these and many other questions.

About the Author

Stewart Ross

After several years teaching at a variety of institutions in Britain, the USA, the Middle East and Sri Lanka, Stewart Ross became a full-time writer eleven years ago. With over 175 published titles to his credit, in a remarkably short time he has become one of Britain’s most popular and versatile authors.

Current projects include a third adult novel, five volumes in Hodder's Survivors series of children's historical fiction, more volumes in their Stories From History for young children, several other historical stories and works of non-fiction, a Jubilee revue, and a musical with Paul Englishby (musical director of Captain Corelli's Mandolin'). A frequent lecturer, notably on the QE2, and occasional journalist and broadcaster, Stewart lives near Canterbury with his wife and four children. Each morning escapes domestic hubbub by commuting ten metres to work in a large hut in the garden.
