Waiting For The All Clear
Anyone who's interested in the London Blitz should put this on their reading list immediately. I learned about it from a list of research materials Connie Willis placed on her blog.She got such vivid imagery in Blackout and All Clear that I knew it would be full of great information, and I was right. It's stuffed with firsthand accounts of life during the Blitz, and the personal narrative format makes it not only informative and readable, but also incredibly personal and affecting.It's one thing to read about the Blitz and imagine thousands of Londoners bravely continuing with their lives in the face of bombardment, but another thing completely to read a woman's reminiscence about how her mother sacrificed herself to keep her daughter safe from shrapnel.This is an important book for anyone interested in World War II.
