In-Game Description[edit | edit source]

As the 18th century came to an end, Samuel Johnson said that "if a man is tired of London, he is tired of life - for there is in London all that life can afford." It felt like that for a century and a half after that, too the Industrial Revolution and all its innovation, the Underground, the tea shops and new landmarks, and the fact that London was the financial centre of the world and of an Empire on which the Sun never set.

The Blitz came, and the people of London suffered terribly; more than thirty thousand were slain, large tracts of housing were ruined, people fled in droves to the countryside and beyond. Had that been all that happened, London would have bounced back - but the Hitlerites had more in store for the prime city of Britain.

The capital of the United Kingdom fell to Germany after a long and bloody siege by Wehrmacht forces Fighting in the outer boroughs had an intensity not seen since that of the Eastern Front. The city centre, however, was largely spared after Germany accepted its surrender. But the scars of the war still remain. There are many nights when the bars, which even in the Thirties were once full of Whitehall careerists and other assorted merrymakers, fall silent, and the scent and sounds of a city in decay slowly begin to overwhelm the senses.
