- Personal narratives.
- When the Blitz hit London, everything changed. Once, the Home Front was relatively safe -- now it wasn't. Suddenly, London was its own front line. This book follows the fortunes of two major London hospitals as they struggled to cope with mounting wartime casualties: St Thomas' and The London. The diaries, letters and reports of medical and nursing staff highlight the many human stories of tremendous courage and hope that lived and breathed within the corridors, theatres and wards of London's hospitals during the Blitz.
