Britain at War

Associated Press

The blitz over St. Paul's Cathedral, London, 1942
I found a wonderful feature on the Telegraph website this morning called "Britain at War." The newspaper is posting its original articles, along with a time line, photos and the first-person account  of 92-year-old W.E. Deedes retracing the route his battalion took in 1944-45 from Normandy to Hanover, Germany.

Hi Larry: Are you sure that picture of St. paul's wasn't taken in 1940? It seems to me the Luftwaffe was busy taking on the Soviets in 1942 and wasn't bombing England in 1942, during the day anyway. Just asking--keep up the good work, the blog is great.
