    It was a Sunday and the 114th day of bombardment from the seemingly unstoppable Luftwaffe. That more bombs would fall in the next few hours was considered inevitable - but the scale of the destruction would test the capital's fighting spirit to the limit. This account of 'the second great fire of London' examines, hour by hour, how the military, government and voluntary services struggled to survive. Most of all, it pays tribute to millions of ordinary and extraordinary Londoners.
