Crime in World War II

Between 1939 and 1945 crime in Britain rose by more than 50%. The blackout (restrictions on showing lights) made crime easier. The sound of bombing disguised the sound of 
blowing safes or smashing windows to break into buildings. There were also, of course plenty or rich pickings from bombed houses. And you could steal things like rings from the  bodies of people killed by German bombing. www.localhistories.org/secondlife.html
