I recommend this book to anybody interested in the Blitz on London and the V1 raids in 1944, one week after D-Day. I was looking out of the bathroom window of our house in Burstow Road at 0835 on 19 June when I saw a flying bomb gliding towards me.. I ran down stairs and the explosion removed our roof, doors and windows. My mother and 2 brothers were already in the shelter.. This is the 3rd bomb described on page 79.
