The Manchester Blitz

In late autumn 1940, the Blitz spread beyond London to Britain's other major towns and cities. Many were the locations of major war industries. However, it was often their compact commercial centres and residential areas that were most badly affected by air raids.

The Blitz is one of the most dramatic chapters in Britain's wartime history. The sights and scenes that played out in the sky and on the ground during the Blitz were witnessed not only by civilians and servicemen, but also by artists and photographers.
