Bomb Sight – Mapping the World War 2 London Blitz Bomb Census

“A screaming comes across the sky”. If you haven’t read Gravity’s Rainbow then take a quick sec to do that now. All good? Sweet! So now its clear how exciting (and impressive) this interactive map is. If you cheated and haven’t read the book in the last few seconds then I will help you out a bit. A portion of the plot highlights an interesting finding. Seems the map of one Tyrone Slothrop’s sexual conquests align perfectly with the map of bomb attacks in London. Perhaps you have no interest in one of the greatest works of fiction in the 20th century; if that’s the case, appreciate this for the research and for just how busted London was in WWII. You can hardly tell if you go there today.
