Summary, etc.: "When Hitler unleashed a fierce barrage of weapons on the defiant capital of the United Kingdom and England, London's resilient citizens were undaunted. With colorful detail and rich insight, historian Maureen Waller takes readers through London in the last year of war. She reveals the magnificence of human spirit that carried a besieged people through agonizing travails and the long, giddy transformation the metropolis made as it passed through battle, to celebration, and back to life as usual."-- Page 4 of cover.
