London at War: Relics of the Home Front from the World Wars

London at War: Relics of the Home Front from the World Wars

Alan Brooks


the 2 global wars of the 20th century look so far away from us now, a life-time in the past, in a special age. but in London the proof of those conflicts is round us, close to to hand, within the many relics and reminders which are scattered around the cloth of the fashionable urban. And, as Alan Brooks demonstrates during this interesting photographic list, they are often visible and visited this day.

Plaques and inscriptions, graves, cemeteries and rolls of honor, stone monuments and stained glass, war-damaged structures, pillboxes and air-raid shelters, painted indicators and camouflage – those are only a few of the mementoes of struggle, and of the adventure of Londoners, in the course of the maximum conflicts the rustic has identified.
