In this gripping historical narrative, Margaret Gaskin puts the reader into the middle of the Blitz, its horror and its heroism, by vividly reconstructing the night that Hitler tried to burn the city to the groundthe night that one of the war’s most haunting photographs was taken, showing St. Paul’s still standing amid burning ruins.

Murrow and FDRto tell the story as it has never before been told.
