Starting with the London Blitz, followed by raids on Britain’s other major cities, the German heavy bombing campaign against civilian targets created a baptism-of-fire for the Fire service, Wardens, Rescue, Heavy rescue, Ambulance service and others that made up the nation’s Civil Defence services. This book tried to express in words and photographs what all of those incredibly brave and dedicated people achieved for their neighbours and their country.
