'A mysterious air-raid shelter! A plane crash under fire! A secret operation! A noise in the attic!' The four stories featured in "Blitz" share a common theme - World War II and it's effect on the lives of ordinary people, especially children. Robert Westall's powerful writing focuses not only on the drama and danger of living in a country at war, but also captures the heady excitement and almost farcical humour of exceptional circumstances. "One of the best loved of children's writers." - "The Times".
