Norwich: A Shattered City by Steve Snelling
This highly informative and richly illustrated new book tells “the story of Hitler’s blitz on Norwich and its people” in 1942.
The book offers detailed accounts of the Baedeker raids that destroyed sections of Norwich, claiming 200 civilian lives. The images of the city’s familiar corners, parks, and streets register as shockingly unfamiliar in photographs from the time. Walking the beautiful, safe streets of our city today, it is hard to imagine other times.
