The London Blitz in 1940 – Reports by Edward R. Murrow and his team

70 years ago on September 7, 1940, nearly 1,000 German air planes attacked London and the UK - attacks that were to last until 1941.

Edward R. Murrow and his team covered the Blitz from the streets, rooftops and bomb shelters of London for radio audiences across the USA.
