How very strange to be the only one in LibraryThing who has read this book (as of 20th Feb 2016).
It was written 25 years ago and I believe there is a new book by the same author on the same topic recently published.
This is a very detailed account of the early days of the war in Belfast and the preparations, or more sadly, lack of preparations, to cope with enemy attacks. This is followed by a thorough description of the several weeks during which the various blitz attacks took place. It is harrowing and graphic without being gratuitously gruesome. Finally, the slow recovery, rebuilding and lasting affects are discussed.
A very powerful and well-written book, with lots of first-person material included. ( )
