The war took many lives and was a dreadful time for a lot of people it was described as a big dark cloud that was cast all around the globe. But it was especially bad in London where a lot of bombing took place. It was so horrific that parents sent their children on a train to the countryside so that they would be safe. The town was described ghostly after the terrible bombings. With lots of people being injured or killed because of the bombings you could feel the unlucky ones walking around you as if they were ghosts.
