This book was the culmination of a five-year project to create a legacy to the German attacks on Sheffield in December 1940.
The devastating bombings - which became known as the Sheffield Blitz - left nearly a tenth of the city homeless and killed and wounded over 2,000 people.
'Countdown to the Sheffield Blitz' is packed with scores of rare photos and provides an in-depth guide to the bombings of December 12th and 15th, 1940. It has been compiled by Neil Anderson – author of the best-selling Sheffield’s Date With Hitler.
The book puts the bombings in the wider context of the German bombings that started on London a few weeks earlier.
'Countdown to the Sheffield Blitz' uses scores of newly documented interviews and primary source materials.
