Damage to Canterbury during WW2 - Baedeker Blitz

"Canterbury under fire" - Damage sustained by bombing on the city by German planes of the luftwaffe during WW2. The Baedeker Blitz (or Baedeker raids) were targetted raids, chosen for hitting sites of cultural or historical significance, rather than for any military value. The raid on Canterbury (which coincided with the RAF's 1, 000 bomber raid on Cologne), involved 77 bombers, dropping 40 tons of bombs, resulting in 43 deaths. The raids hit Canterbury in May, June and October 1942. Date: 1942
