About This Book

The Little History Of Coventry packs into its pages the colour and incident of a thousand years, telling the story of a city that has perhaps been overlooked by mainstream historians but which has been at the heart of this country’s great events many times. From testing ground of the saintly Godiva to fourteenth century boom town, from Second World War Blitz victim to the next UK City of Culture, Coventry has always been an inventive place with an unerring ability to bounce back from misfortune and make its mark. This is a truly eye-opening journey through the events and characters that have shaped that story and made Coventry one of England’s hidden jewels.
