See Where the Bombs Fell on London During the Blitz

By Gary Cutlack on at

Would you have been obliterated back in 1940 and 1941 when the Germans were trying to break the spirit of the nation during the Blitz? Now you can find out.

The interactive Bomb Sight map, put together by a team at the University of Portsmouth using data from The National Archives, shows Blitz data on a street-by-street basis across the entire Greater London area. It even fills in details about the type of bomb dropped, should that have been worked out and recorded as part of the London WWII bomb census put together at the time.

Each red dot is where a bomb fell. Some 20,000 Londoners were killed during the Blitz. You know the rest. [Bomb Sight via BBC]
