Westminster Abbey piled with sandbags, Parliament Square strung with barbed wire, the wax figures at Madame Tussaud's melted in the streets, the Tower of London's moat planted in onions and carrots. In addition to detailed maps that guide the traveler along each tour, London's War is filled with biographical bits, topical information, and cultural references that relate the wartime experiences of famous and regular people alike. It quotes the war-related writing and speeches of great authors including Virginia Woolf, George Orwell, and many others.
