This little book does not attempt to give a full account of the bombing of British hospitals. It does, however, reflect to some extent the effects of bombing on institutions which care for women and children as well as for others, and it does reflect also the manner in which the people of London responded to the attacks that were made on them. The book is replete with illustrations and with anecdotes and is supplemented with a list of the heroes and heroines who were recognized with Distinguished Service medals and with other decorations for their heroic activities during the bombing of the hospitals. Obviously, unless one has been in immediate contact with such hazards it is almost impossible to appreciate the serious conditions that eventuate.
