What was it like in London during the Second World War? How did Londoners cope with the Blitz , the V1 flying bomb attacks, food rationing and all the other hardships of war? What happened to the children when London was in the front line of the battle against Nazi Germany?

HOLNET looks at this and more in the first section of a site dedicated exclusively to the history of London. Its four sections - Air Raids, Daily Life, Children at war and Shelters - contain photographs, paintings, posters, diaries, personal reflections and local newsletters from and about the people of London.
