The astonishing interactive map that
shows every bomb dropped on
London during The Blitz

Daily Mail [UK], by Mark Prigg

If you´ve ever wondered how close London’s landmarks came to being blown up in the Blitz, a new interactive map has the answer.[Snip] The site can tell people exactly when their area was hit, and even show photos from the period. ´The Bomb Sight project is mapping the London WW2 bomb census between 7/10/1940 and 06/06/1941,´ the team say on their site. ´Previously available only by viewing in the Reading Room at The National Archives, Bomb Sight is making the maps available to citizen researchers, academics and students wanting to explore where the bombs

Comments:
An amazing bit of work, definitely worth a look.

While London was by far the hardest hit fifteen other cities suffered during the Blitz. I´d also like to see a map of the "Doodlebugs" (missiles) fired into Britain from Nazi-occupied countries towards the end of the war--comparable to the terror caused by missiles being lobbed into Israel today (excluding numbers and years of terror).

"comparable to the terror caused by missiles being lobbed into Israel today" except that the rockets being fired into Israel only carry about 10kg of explosives, vs 1,000kg for the V-1. But being under rocket fire is NOT something I want to go through again (Vietnam). I´m glad to see Iron Dome working as well as it is.

Very cool. I wasn´t able to get to the mapping site, the story showed scenes I am very familiar with. I lived on Shad Thames in Butlers Wharf (Cinnamon Wharf, actually). I worked in the building the built to replace the rubble near St Paul´s.

Unbelievable to see how widespread these horrible bombs were. There were areas in the West Country/Bristol area badly damaged. Our home had a bomb shelter, which we used as a potting shed for the garden.

What´s truly amazing is how evenly dispersed the bombs are, very few untouched areas, as if placed exactly where intended, although that sophistication in guidance was unavailable back then.

Damage inflicted negligible compared to that caused by the firebombing of Dresden, Hamburg and Berlin which resulted in the killing of over 500K men, women and children.

Personally, I would have preferred that the British not provide Poland with a war guarantee thereby unleashing the Wehrmacht to the East where they could have dispensed with the progenitors of our left today.

The Poles would have negotiated a passage to East Prussia and Danzig would have gone to Germany where it belonged. No Soviet Union, no Iron Curtain, no 60 million dead, no thrid world invasion of Europe today. Plus Madagascar is quite nice.

#8, yes it MIGHT have gone that way, but history is much stranger than fiction and we only assume things are the way they are meant to be, instead of counting our blessings. You and I could be writing this in German, but more importantly, if George Washington had moved four inches to the right or left, I´m guessing LOTS of things would be different and knowing German would be lower on the list.

That was war, that was hell.

Compare and contrast with what we have today.

Politically correct claptrap where our soldiers can´t fire unless positively, absolutely fired upon.

Do we want to win or just want to play face saving games....don´t reply I already know the answer.

My Mother was born in London and my Grandfather moved to Canada just before the blitz started. My Grandfather fought in WWI in Kitchner´s Army. He told me the best and brightest of two generations of Great Briton were killed in the two wars and that´s why Briton was in decline. Probably some truth to that.

Hey! Reply #8 -CharlesMartel732,
´Damage inflicted negligible compared to that caused by the firebombing of Dresden, Hamburg and Berlin which resulted in the killing of over 500K men, women and children.´

What a callous display of moral equivalency.
Well Martel, if your patron saint, uncle Adolph,and his supporters, had not decided to enslave the rest of humanity perhaps Dresden, Hamburg, and Berlin could have been spared the horrors of an all out war.

Can you spare a word of compassion for those who were transported to the gas chambers from all over Europe? How about the MILLIONS of murders, massacres, and rapes, of your trained exterminators of the Master Race?

Sorry, but the screams and shrieks of Belsen, Dachau, Auschwitz, and Sobibor drown out your childish protests.

Your history revisionism might be better suited for the readers of a leftists site.

The best and brightest of two generations of men throughout Europe and the USA were lost in these two damn wars.

Hitler´s intent was very clearly stated and unambiguous: the destruction of Soviet Bolshevism and the reinstatement of Germany´s stolen lands in which still resided ethnic Germans who were being persecuted.

The costs of WWI and WWII were simply not worth it. 60 million dead in WWII alone not counting the millions lost to Communism after the war. This was victory? Losing the West to an alien invasion is victory?

The West was gutted by both world wars and her ability to resist impaired, perhaps irretrievably.

#14, that´s the ticket! Resort to ad hominem attacks. The holocaust is always the trump card to drown out any view contrary to those moral exhibitionists who insist that no objective examination of events may be conducted. Revisionism is nothing more than open fair objective debate. Now, what could be wrong with that?

And what about "the screams and shrieks" of the other 60 million? Are we to forget them? And how about the screams and shrieks of the additional millions killed after the war? Or the screams and shrieks of those killed by Bolsheviks at Katyn Forest? Or the screams and shrieks of the hundreds of millions enslaved by the Communists?

Are their voices to count for nothing? A dispassionate objective consideration of the war and its causes and how to have avoided it is long overdue.

Seven million voters turned out across Afghanistan on Saturday to cast their ballots in the country´s historic presidential election. The Taliban had threatened to target voters and polling places, but there were few instances of violence. Instead, those wanting to cast ballots joined long lines and expressed pride for security forces guarding the election and a willingness to stand up for their country. Women also turned out in large numbers for the vote to replace President Hamid Karzai, who is barred constitutionally from seeking a third term. The election comes as foreign troops begin their withdrawal from the country after

A second pulse signal has been picked up by a Chinese ship searching for missing Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370--just 1.2 miles from where the first was detected. Australian co-ordinators in the search for a missing Malaysian plane say Chinese ship Haixun 01 has detected a pulse signal for a second time, within hours of it being heard earlier on Saturday.

Three million lower-income Americans have enrolled in the Medicaid program for the poor so far during the rollout of U.S. President Barack Obama´s healthcare reform law, the administration announced on Friday. [Snip] A percentage of those new enrollees includes prisoners in cash-strapped states that have decided to rely on Obamacare for their inmates’ health insurance needs. The prisoners are getting brought into the fold the same way that a number Medicaid enrolees are, as 26 states are in the process of trying to extend medical coverage to single and childless adults who fall into certain categories.

We are often warned that supplements can be dangerous when mixed with medication. But now research is starting to show that the right combinations can be helpful in fighting illness. Co-enzyme Q10, or CoQ10, for example, is now often recommended by doctors to patients on statins.

DEPRESSION--The medication: Antidepressants, The supplement: B vitamins. Why: ‘I sometimes prescribe a Vitamin B compound with antidepressants as it can act as a pick-me-up,’ says Dr Mike Dixon.

Palestinian medical and security sources said five sites in northern and southern Gaza were hit, including training camps for the militant Islamic Jihad and Ezzedine al-Qassam Brigades, Hamas´s military wing. The Palestinians said there were no injuries in the attacks.

Earthquakes rattled residents in Oklahoma on Saturday, the latest in a series that have put the state on track for record quake activity this year, which some seismologists say may be tied to oil and gas exploration. One earthquake recorded at 3.8 magnitude by the U.S. Geological Survey rocked houses in several communities around central Oklahoma at 7:42 a.m. local time. Another about two hours earlier in the same part of the state, north of Oklahoma City, was recorded at 2.9 magnitude, USGS said.

For a president long criticised for seeing things only in black and white, the exhibition of George W Bush´s art at his presidential library in Dallas comes as something of a revelation. Delicate brushwork has replaced his famed swagger. He presents himself as a wholly different kind of Texas oilman. With each new brushstroke he seems also to be softening his public image. [Snip] His vantage point, of course, is unique: the cockpit of the presidency--or, at least, his recollection of those tumultuous White House years. So there is more to them than canvas, paints and brushes. Another key ingredient

The US Treasury has granted plane manufacturer Boeing a licence to export certain spare commercial parts to Iran, a company spokesman says. Boeing has had no public dealings with Tehran since 1979. In a statement, the US company said the licence had been granted for the safety of flight. The step is being seen as part of a temporary agreement to ease sanctions on Tehran that US Secretary of State John Kerry reached with Iran last year. Under the deal brokered in November, Iran agreed to curtail its nuclear activities for six months in exchange for sanctions relief from nations including Britain, China and

An angry crowd attacked an Ebola treatment centre in Guinea on Friday, accusing its staff of bringing the deadly disease to the town, Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) said, as Mali identified its first suspected cases. More than 90 people have already died in Guinea and Liberia in what the medical charity has warned could turn into an unprecedented epidemic in an impoverished region with poor health services. The outbreak in Guinea is the first time the disease, epidemics of which occur regularly in Central Africa, has appeared in the country. Infected patients initially went undiagnosed for several weeks before tests confirmed Ebola.

Former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney has sworn off running again for elected office, but Americans have certainly heard that one before. Speculation that Romney might run again has largely been stoked by the reunion he planned to host last month in Park City, Utah, for members of his 2012 campaign and debate team and a string of recent public appearances. He has appeared on TV news shows 12 times in the past six months. That’s essentially on pace with Michigan GOP Rep.
