    Neighbors spotted the black smoke lifting from behind the house on Wimbledon Park Road in the Southfields neighborhood of southwest London. The smell was so alarmingly pungent and foul firefighters were called to the scene. When the crew pushed into the garden of the $1.2 million residence, a bonfire was belching flames. Once the blaze was doused, firefighter Thomas Hunt’s eyes zeroed in on the ashes: Clothing, jewelry and a human nose and fingers appeared to be in the smoking pile.

    His 7:20 a.m. alarm had just yanked him awake. Got to get the kids — a boy in seventh grade, a girl in kindergarten — ready for school. Then he heard, like a starter’s pistol setting everything into motion, the first pounding on the front door of his home in Leawood, Kan., a bedroom suburb south of Kansas City. It was thunderous. It didn’t stop. Should I get up? Bob thought. Should I not? Sounded like the house was coming down, he would recall later.

    The once-proud neighborhood was a skeletal wreck. Many of the residents had already bolted, pockets stuffed with fat payouts from the city. Their houses had since been pancaked by wrecking balls. The structures still standing were being picked clean by looters or eaten away by arson. In late spring of 1981, Detroit’s Poletown neighborhood, a working-class grid on the city’s northern lip known as a hub for Polish immigrants and culture, had been reduced to a literal battlefield.
