Any mention of the Blitz is likely to conjure up images of Londoners huddled in the Underground, while the city was being reduced to rubble. But was there more to it than just a stiff upper lip? Taking a broader view of the era, the author of Operation Fortitude reveals a time which saw increased job opportunities for women, a spike in nightclub attendance, and a resurgence of prostitution. Joshua Levine also looks at the darker side of the time period, as racketeers and looters sought to capitalize on the chaos in the capital.
