The Belfast Blitz - ebook version

News from the Ulster Historical Foundation on Jonathan Bardon's revised book The Belfast Blitz:

The Belfast Blitz – eBook now available
We are pleased to announce that the Foundation’s new publication, The Belfast Blitz by Brian Barton, is now also available as an eBook. Available in ePub and mobi formats, the eBook is priced at only £7.99 (US$ 12.38, AUS$ 16.06, CAN$15.22)

The book is the most wide-ranging, comprehensive and accurate account of the Belfast blitz yet written. Drawing on a rich range of primary and secondary sources it gets closer to the events described than any previous publication. Large numbers of people, including first-hand witnesses, were interviewed, and documentary material was assembled from some thirty archive centres.

Vividly illustrated with almost two hundred original photographs, many previously unpublished, the book also contains for the first time the full list of civilian dead – almost nine hundred names – compiled by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. It will thus serve as a timely memorial, on the seventy-fifth anniversary in 2016, of one of the most devastating periods in Belfast’s history.
