Availability: In stock

Author: John Christopher

During the Second World War the British Government, through the Ministry of Home Security, issued a number of publications advising the civilian population on what they needed to know and what they must do in an air raid. This special edition reproduces that practical information on a range of subjects including air-raid shelters, protection against high-explosive bombs, incendiary devices and the ever present risk of a gas attack.

‘Do your part in preparing to meet this and any other form of air attack. Act carefully, calmly, and promptly on the instructions that are given you.’

Air Raids explains the role of the Civil Defence services and vividly brings to life the practicalities of living in constant fear of an air raid. It provides the modern reader with an evocative insight into life on the home front in the dark days of the Blitz.
