Using the relevant sheets of the 1:25,000 Ordnance Survey maps, the Architect's staff hand-coloured the maps according to the degree of damage suffered by each building. The sheets also indicated the impact points of the German V1 flying bombs and V2 long-range rockets of 1944 and 1945, together with the extensive devastation that they caused" (introduction). Collected and reprinted here they offer "a unique insight into the shaping of modern London."
