Description

In April 1942, Bath suffered enormous devastation at the hands of the Luftwaffe. More than 19,000 buildings were destroyed or damaged, and over 400 people were killed, many of them women and children. Yet contemporary Bath bears almost no sign of this destructive period in its recent history it appears to be an elegant and intact Georgian city. This book is a memorial to the city’s sufferings and the bravery of its residents during the Second World War. With stunning archive images from the collection of Bath in Time, and modern photographs by professional photographer and Bath resident Dan Brown, author of Bath: City on Show, it seeks to reveal the truth after half a century of silence. In full colour, this book will delight both residents and visitors alike.

(96 pages / Hardback)
