Product description

Liverpool was devastated by the May Blitz but the spirit of its people could not be broken and this became part of local history.

Featuring stunning images from the Liverpool Echo archive, Mersey Blitz takes you back to a 17-month period between August 1940 and January 1942 when the Nazis targeted the city. This May Blitz magazine is packed with remarkable stories and pictures demonstrating our city s unbeatable spirit.
