Introduction

Does Source D support the evidence of Sources B and C about the damage done during air raids? Sources B and D both show the immense damage that was caused by the air raids during the Blitz.

Middle

Source B shows deaths where as source D showed the destruction the air raids executed on people's homes. This suggests some areas were worse affected by the blitz than others, such as the east end. Source D also supports the evidence of Source C about the damage during the Blitz.

Source D doesn't agree with sources B and C as it is used for different intentions, for example image C and D are both showing people on the streets but C shows the people looking courageous and D shows them looking demoralized. ...read more.
