Coven­try

Who Do You Think You Are? Magazine - - THE GUIDE -

by Fred­er­ick Tay­lor ( Blooms­bury, 305 pages, £20) On the night of 14 Novem­ber 1940, Coven­try was hit by one of the worst raids of the Se­cond World War. In this new his­tory, Fredrick Tay­lor presents the bomb­ing of the city as a sig­nif­i­cant turn­ing point in aerial warfare and chal­lenges the per­sis­tent ru­mours that Coven­try was left un­de­fended to pro­tect the break­ing of the Enigma code. It is a grip­ping ac­count and an im­por­tant new work in the study of the con­flict. (Am­ber­ley, 288 pages, £9.99)
