Vicki Washuk World War ll Blitz  Buy On Smashwords    Also   Buy Diary's Here:
I am the great-granddaughter of Ruby Side Thompson. 
Recently I started re-reading the World War ll journals and felt that they were such an important part of a history that will soon be forgotten if not published and shared with the world. These diary excerpts are not the entirety of what is published in print and kindle.
Ruby grew up during a time when education was just beginning to be encouraged for both upper and middle class women. During the late 1890's Ruby explored many radical political ideas of London, England. She met many famous people including the writers George Bernard Shaw and William Butler Yeats.

World War ll London Blitz Diary: 9-1-39 I loved this book! I really enjoyed reading this. Sometimes diaries can be boring, but this never was. Ruby expresses her feelings so well. I love reading history and for me this was not just reading history, but the personal thoughts of a woman who was actually living through the war. This book brought the war of the home front vividly to my eyes. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in history, especially of WWII and the home front.

9-1-39 



War started today,another week of lies and duplicity, Hitler launched into actual warfare early this morning he announced the enclosure of Danzig in the Reich, and at he bombed his first Polish town. 



BBC announced King George held Privy Council and has signed papers completing mobilization of Forces. This country is at war with Germany. French at war with Germany. So here is the war. 



We have been fending it off for years. The folly of men is now going to destroy men. Force will fight force. Maybe the right will prevail. I don’t know. I can only hope so. God keep us all! 



Hitler announced the enclosure of Danzig in the Reich, and at he bombed his first Polish town. Reports were that the Germans had already bombed eight Polish cities, and were attacking on all frontiers. 


BBC announced King George held Privy Council and has signed papers completing mobilization of Forces. This country is at war with Germany. French at war with Germany. So here is the war. 

We have been fending it off for years. The folly of men is now going to destroy men. Force will fight force. 

Maybe the right will prevail. I don’t know. I can only hope so. God keep us all!
