In the year of the 100th anniversary of the Zeppelin air raids of WWI, and the 75th anniversary of the London Blitz during WW2, this exhibition uncovers historical manuscripts, maps, photographs and films that tell us about the destruction of the city, the threat of imminent invasion and the heroism of ordinary Londoners.
