Click on the buttons for a (blast-taped) window onto the Second World War.
There's a timeline to show you what happened when and where The Ring from the Ruins fits in (sorry, this page doesn't show if you're browsing on a mobile).
You'll also find a handful of famous people from different sides of the Second World War, some useful links to other websites about WW2, and even a couple of wartime recipes you might like to try. (Warning: they may be more fun to cook than to eat!)
St. Paul's looking down over the ruins of a blitzed London. It's no wonder so many of the current buildings around the cathedral are less than seventy years old!
