Description

The first in the Death and Destruction series which will focus on different subjects or places. Starting with the Thames in London, the book is set out in a distinctive magazine-style format with subheads, bullets and box-outs.

It will explore the tragedies and enforced changes on and along the Thames, including fires (the Great Fire of London and Parliament burning), ships sinking, wartime bombs and buildings destroyed, including York House on the Embankment whose archway shows the changing banks of the river thanks to Victorian intervention. Then there are the bridges, people dying during their creation, suicides, famous failed suicides and a strange case of assassination with an umbrella on Waterloo Bridge. The tide of history along the Thames will be examined, including the infamous last journeys through Traitors Gate, one of the last sightings of the Thames Anne Boleyn would see before her execution. As well as the notable and bizarre deaths, the murders and executions, the book explores the positive life-saving methods in place, including the Thames Barrier.
