U.K. geographers have mapped where German bombs fell throughout London during the eight-month Blitz in World War II. About 20,000 people were killed in the city and some 20,000 others died elsewhere in Britain during the German bombing campaign, which took place in 1940 and 1941. "It seems astonishing that London survived the onslaught," said Kate Jones, a geographer at the University of Portsmouth.
