Rare color footage of the bomb damage inflicted on London during World War II has surfaced on the eve of the 70th anniversary of the Blitz.

The dramatic footage shows the destruction of several London landmarks, including the flagship John Lewis store on Oxford Street.

The film was released Monday by Westminster Council to mark the start of the devastating German bombing campaign that began September 7, 1940, and continued until May 1941.

The film was found in the attic by the family of an air raid warden who shot it on the home movie equipment in use in the 1940s.

The footage also shows wartime leader Winston Churchill visiting bomb sites to assess the damage.

This was a simply stunning video of the damage that happened to the great city of London by the Nazi's. It also shows Mr. Churchill evaluating the damage that was done to his nation.

no offense to the OP
but I could have sworn I saw this
video posted in another thread here
within the last week. Maybe I'm wrong.
I did a search but came up empty as it may
have a different title. Oh well
it's still a good video
and in color

I thought for sure it would have already been posted too but I did a search and found nothing. So I just posted it.
