London has been under attack for literally centuries. Michael Foley's book records the dramatic military history of the capital from Roman times until the Second World War and beyond. Throughout its early history London was at the centre of hostilities, not always instigated by foreign enemies, but more often from the city's own inhabitants or those from other parts of Britain. As well as the terrible Blitz on London during the Second World War, earlier conflicts which made an impact on the city are also documented, including the Civil Wars of twelfth and seventeenth centuries, the wars between King John and the barons, uprisings against the poll tax, the Gordon Riots and numerous other rebellions and conflicts that have been largely forgotten in the twenty-first century. London Under Attack is a must-read for all those interested in military history as well as the turbulent history of our nation's capital and draws some interesting comparisons between the past and modern times.
