will be remembered as the year when time finally ran out on Coventry City. For 34 years they had graced the elite of English football. In ten of those seasons they carried the threat of relegation into the last match. In all ten they had survived, leaving pulses racing and fingernails chewed to the quick. Such was the elation on each occasion, that supporters greeted the final whistle. The First World War claimed over , British lives, and its legacy continues to be remembered today. Great War Britain: Coventry offers an intimate portrayal of the city and its people living in the shadow of the "war to end all wars." A beaut.

Famous and notorious individuals are portrayed here, dramatic, sometimes tragic events are remembered, and familiar local myths and legends are explored. The volume is a source of fascinating insights into Coventry's past and should provide answers to frequently asked historical questions - the whos, wheres and whys that make up the rich. Yet, today the raid on Coventry is mostly remembered because of the controversy over whether or not, thanks to Britain’s ability to decrypt coded German messages, Prime Minister Winston Churchill knew in advance of the attack on Coventry, but decided not to forewarn its residents and risk alerting the Germans that their codes had been broken.
