    London's rail network suffered heavy damage during the Second World War, both from deliberate attacks on the transport infrastructure and from accidental hits. This book provides a day-by-day account of destruction wrought on the railways throughout the Blitz of 1940-41 and the rocket raids of 1944, and recounts the heroic struggle of railway staff to restore services in difficult and dangerous conditions. Dramatic wartime photographs show familiar landmarks such as Waterloo Station transformed into scenes of utter devastation.
