Bloody British History
SouthamptoneBook - 2012
Southampton has one of the darkest and most dreadful histories on record. The city has been assaulted by the Romans, Vikings, Normans, and the King's men, razed to the ground by the French and bombed almost to extinction by the Nazis. Inside the walls, violence, terror, and destruction raged, from the horrors of God's House Tower gaol to the dolorous deaths of the Southampton Plot ringleaders, who were executed outside Bargate. A city with a most martial of histories, Southampton has seen millions of soldiers flood out from the port towards the battlefields of Europe and beyond, many never to return. With bombs, blood, and battles, famous disasters such as the sinking of the Titanic and the awful destruction of the Blitz, read this book if you dare!
