The two world wars of the twentieth century seem so distant from us now, a lifetime ago, in a different age. Yet in London the evidence of these conflicts is around us, near at hand, in the many relics and reminders that are scattered across the fabric of the modern city. And, as Alan Brooks demonstrates in this fascinating photographic record, they can be seen and visited today. Plaques and inscriptions, graves, cemeteries and rolls of honour, stone monuments and stained glass, war-damaged buildings, pillboxes and air-raid shelters, painted signs and camouflage - these are just some of the mementoes of war, and of the experience of Londoners, during the greatest conflicts the country has known.
