Amazing!

Comments about PBS The Blitz: London's Longest Night DVD:

I watched this DVD with rapt attention. The archival footage really helps those of us who weren't there to understand the full horror of that night and the Blitz generally. The attitude of the Brits is amazing -- and incredible that it had the opposite effect on British morale than Hitler hoped for. I highly recommend watching this.

Difficult to Imagine the Terror

Comments about PBS The Blitz: London's Longest Night DVD:

Such frightful stories and images! Bombs rained down on the civilian population of urban London by the German Luftwaffe in an atrocity not before applied as a psychological tactic to terrorize the citizens. America was fortunate to avoid an attack on our mainland during the wars... until recently.

Comments about PBS The Blitz: London's Longest Night DVD:

The re inactments were a bit off...I would have liked more real footage, I was an evacuee during a lot of the blitz , but as a Londoner I spent a lot of my childhood in an Air Raid shelter

Difficult to watch

By Caliban

Verified Buyer

Comments about PBS The Blitz: London's Longest Night DVD:

I am a Londoner and was a ten year old when the blitz occurred On the night depicted on the DVD I watched from a distance as a glow developed on the horizon. We spent about seventy nights largely in cold and damp air raid shelters and the night depicted in the DVD occurred at the peak. My maternal grandparents lost everything and came to live with us. The DVD was hard to watch.
