Did not capture our attention

  • Book Rating: 1/5

Sets out to describe the experiences of citizens of England during indiscriminate aerial bombing campaigns. It foretells the ordeal to be experienced in England during WWII. We saw the newsreels. we were not of a mind to finish this book. Our least favorite by the author.
