Great entry in a great series
22 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

Dr. Susannah Lipscomb's "Hidden Killers" series is to British social history a little like "Time Team" is to British archaeology, showing you the (sometimes morbidly) fascinating details that give you a better understanding of the whole historical picture. This installment was particularly interesting for me as an American Anglophile. Living in a country with such material abundance and so well protected from enemy attack that an event like 9/11 was (thankfully) unprecedented, it was shocking to learn that the British public who wanted new houses or renovations had to take their chances with potentially deadly DIY construction projects in the postwar era because experienced professional builders were fully occupied repairing the damage done by German bombers during World War II.
