A personal account of living through the blitz in Liverpool as seen through the eyes of a Liverpool schoolboy and ARP Messenger.  By the end of the war he was serving with a mine disposal unit in Northern Ireland.  The book is illustrated with many photographs of the effects of bombing on the infrastructure and buildings in Liverpool, and the stoic inhabitants going about their business amidst the rubble. 

Rodney kept an account of the raids, people killed and many acts of heroism.  He also described moments of Scouse humour, such as when a tobacconists' shop and pub were destroyed by a bomb a docker was heard to moan, "if it's not the bloody pubs they're after, it's the ciggies."
