Bestselling local author David McGrory takes a fresh look at Coventry during the war years. With over 200 photographs and informative captions, the author explores various aspects of wartime Coventry including the Auxiliary Fire Service, the Home Guard and transport and bomber manufacture at Armstrong Whitworth's plants in Whitley and Baginton. Also illustrated are numerous scenes of the city's destruction including images from the notorious eleven-hour raid of 14 November 1940. This absorbing pictorial collection weaves together many facets of wartime life. Coventry at War will not only evoke memories from this time, but will also inspire readers with its images of hope and strength.
