The First Day of the Blitz
The First Day of the Blitz: September 7, 1940 | Peter Stansky, Professor Peter Stansky
1 post
On September 7, 1940, the Blitz began. The bombing of London, by over one thousand planes on that night alone, was recognised at the time as being a direct measure to break the country's resistance. This book tells of the impact that this terror from the skies had on British people and the course of war.

On 7th September 1940, the first day of what became known as the Blitz, a bomb landed in Canning Town. It didn‘t detonate, and people living nearby were evacuated to a local school, from where they were to be bussed out. Administrative errors, wartime chaos and bureaucracy resulted in the buses never arriving. The school was hit by a bomb 3 days later. 600 people were killed.
