Scenes from the crater site

Interview with author Valerie Hardy who lived through the experience and brings together for the first time eye witness testimonies providing  an extraordinary insight into this largely unknown wartime tragedy - a compelling read.

 

The largest ever explosion in Britain made history and changed geography and until the Hiroshima bomb was he biggest unnatural explosion on earth on earth. At 11.11am on 27th November the Second World War came with a terrifying suddenness to a small village in the heart of England when nearly 4,000 tons of bombs accidentally exploded - a tonnage three times greater than fell on London during the worst night of the Blitz - transforming the peaceful rural surroundings into one of horror comparable to the of battlefields of the Western Front. Yet have you heard of it or do you know anyone who has? The catastrophe was hushed up as an official secret and although spy and saboteur stories abounded locally the largest crater in Europe remains unknown: a war grave like none other.
Told for the first time by the people who lived through the event and its aftermath this is a unique chronicle of a disaster the nation forgot.
