This dramatic story chronicles the horror and human suffering of two terrible years in London’s history. 1665 brought the plague and cries of ‘Bring Out Your Dead’ echoed the city. A year later, the already decimated capital was reduced to ashes in four days by the fire that began in Pudding Lane. James Leasor weaves in the first-hand accounts of Daniel Defoe and Samuel Pepys, among others.
