History of Churchill War Rooms
After the great world war one devastation on Britain, military planners had a fear that in the future wars there would be up to 200,000 casualties. As a result, plans were drawn to evacuate the prime minister and other government staff essentials as early as in the 1920s. However, due to the evacuation, the Londoners would feel abandoned and so an emergency shelter was found in Central London.
The war rooms served as a meeting place for the war cabinet during war raids and also serve as a safer place for the prime minister. The war rooms only became full operation in August 27, 1939 which was a week before officially declared war on Germany.
