Plymouth - A Shattered City

£29.99

Product description

" Gerald Wasley shares his memories of the Blitz and provides a full illustrated and detailed account of the aerial bombardment of the city by the Luftwaffe in March 1941 and thereafter.As a schoolboy in wartime, evacuated from Acton in Middlesex to Dartmouth, the author of this book, Gerald Wasley, can remember looking at the red glow in the sky as Plymouth burned under the German bombers in the spring of 1941. Plymouth Destroyed is largely inspired by these memories and provides the only fully illustrated and detailed account of the aerial bombardment of the city by the Luftwaffe in March 1941 and thereafter. First published in 1991 as Plymouth Blitz, the book is now fully revised and updated, including over 200 new photographs and other images, many of them appearing for the first time. For anyone who has an interest in Plymouth, and particularly in the years during which the old city was replaced by post-war redevelopment, this book will be of great fascination. "

Originally published in 1991 as Plymouth Blitz, this second edition as more illustrations added to show 'then and now' situations.

Book has black boards with gilt lettering to the spine. Condition is good with clean pages throughout and securely bound, except for slight tanning to the page edges. Dust jacket is clean with many score marks to the covers and top edges are wrinkled but not torn. Printed in 2004.
