Summary
On the evening of Thursday 14 November 1940 began the most severe bombing to hit Coventry during World War II. This raid represented a new kind of air warfare, one which sacrificed any immediate military goals and focused on obliterating all aspects of city life. By playing down the fact that Coventry was an industrial city and key centre for British armaments, and therefore a fair target, attention was drawn to the destruction of an ancient historic town and the total indifference of the bombers to civilian casualties, in this way the bombing of this city was successfully exploited by the British by several means. Frederick Taylor draws upon numerous sources to reveal the true repercussions of the bombing of Coventry in November 1940. He teases out the truth behind the persistent rumours and conspiracy theories that Coventry may have been left undefended to protect Britain's knowledge of the enigma codes
