This is a full account, using personal anecdotes and stories of the local people, that tells the story of what happened to Coventry during the Blitz between 1940 and 1942.

The photographs are second to none, as always, and readers need to be careful not to get distracted by them! They are a perfect addition to the text, as together they portray an in depth study of what happened at the time.
