• the Blitz and the refusal to surrender London afterward took on-->its not the blitz which took on a significance rather its the londons decision to refuse.
• London’s Blitz and the refusal to surrender took after-->took after is incorrect idiom.
• the Blitz and the refusal of the city of London took over-->changes the meaning.
• London’s refusal to surrender after the Blitz took on--> correct
• London’s refusal to surrender after the Blitz took up -->took up is wrong idiom .

Read on a different forum that 'Though the city..' is an adverbial modifier and not an adjectivial modifier. Therefore, it modifies the entire clause. Is this true?

@vibhav:

I did some researches and saw there are many opinions about "adverbial clause" or "adverbial modifier". According to "official sources" (grammar books, wikipedia, etc.), an adverb clause is a subordinate clause used to modify a verb, adjective, or adverb in the main clause. Every adverb clause is introduced by a subordinating conjunction. An adverb clause tells when, where, why, how, to what extent, or how much about the word it modifies.

These are the links I refer to:

Hope it helps.
