The Blitz, coined from the German word for lightening war (Blitkrieg), saw over 40,000 civilians killed and more than a million houses destroyed in London alone when the German�s conducted mass air attacks against Britain. Eighty years on, The Blitz looks at the build-up to the raids and detailed footage of the destruction that followed. It features interviews from those who lived through it and stories of sadness and bravery, at a time when Britain held strong and swore not to surrender.
