9780117024045: Tragedy at Bethnal Green, 1943 (Uncovered Editions)

The beleaguered East End of London had born much of the brunt of the Blitz but, in 1943, four years into WWII, it seemed that the worst of the bombing was over. The new unfinished tube station at Bethnal Green was one of the largest air raid shelters in London. After a warning siren sounded on March 3, 1943, there was a rush to the shelter. By 8.20pm, a matter of minutes after the alarm had sounded, 174 people lay dead, crushed trying to get into the tube station's booking hall. At the official enquiry, questions were asked about the behaviour of certain officials and whether the accident could have been prevented.
