The Coventry Blitz (blitz: from the German word Blitzkrieg meaning "lightning war" listen ) was a series of bombing raids that took place on the English city of Coventry

The Coventry Blitz (blitz: from the German word Blitzkrieg meaning "lightning war" listen ) was a series of bombing raids that took place on the English city of Coventry. The city was bombed many times during the Second World War by the German Air Force (Luftwaffe). The most devastating of these attacks occurred on the evening of 14 November 1940 and continued into the morning of 15 November.

A new play claims Coventry could have been saved from a German bombing raid- but Churchill let the bombers wreak havoc to protect an even bigger prize. A lot of people in Coventry felt they had been left undefended but this was one of the many myths about that night. In fact, the 24 heavy anti-aircraft guns in six sites around the city had blazed away until some ran out of ammunition and others were too hot to handle. Nearly 7,000 shells were fired at the Luftwaffe, ten rounds every minute. But they were as ineffective as the 120 RAF fighters sent into battle. They and the flak guns didn¿t register a single "kill" between them.

Births, deaths and ceremonies

Births, deaths and ceremonies. Cheylesmore Manor Ceremony Suite. Pages in Cheylesmore Manor Ceremony Suite. The Black Prince Room. The remnants of a medieval royal palace in Coventry city centre, the gatehouse of Cheylesmore Manor is at the heart of the city on New Union Street. The magnificent timber building it is one of the few remnants of Coventry's rich and important heritage. Her grandson Edward, the Black Prince, took possession of it after her. It was described as 'somewhat in ruin' in the 16th century and suffered from Coventry's lack of royal support in the Civil War period.

Did Winston Churchill deliberately sacrifice Coventry and its citizens for the greater good? . It's 70 years since Germany launched one of the most devastating bombing raids of World War II, on Coventry. But did Winston Churchill have prior warning of the attack? It has been claimed in a number of books that the wartime prime minister knew that the city was to be targeted by the German Luftwaffe, but chose to do nothing because it would have alerted Adolf Hitler to the fact the Allies had recently cracked the Nazis' top-secret Enigma codes.

The Black Death was a plague pandemic which devastated Europe from 1347 to 1352 CE, killing an estimated 25-30 . The terrible symptoms of the disease were described by writers of the time, notably by the Italian writer Boccaccio in the preface to his 1358 CE Decameron.

The Black Death was a plague pandemic which devastated Europe from 1347 to 1352 CE, killing an estimated 25-30 million people. One writer, the Welsh poet Ieuan Gethin made perhaps the best attempt at describing the black sores which he saw first-hand in 1349 CE: We see death coming into our midst like black smoke, a plague which cuts off the young, a rootless phantom which has no mercy for fair countenance.
