Duration: 58:14 | Resolution: 640×352 | File Size: 516mb

On 14th November 1940, the Luftwaffe launched the most devastating bombing raid so far on Britain. The target was Coventry, deep in the heart of England. In a 12-hour blitz, the Luftwaffe dropped thousands of tons of bombs. Three-quarters of the city centre was devastated, including the ancient cathedral. The Nazis coined a phrase to describe the absolute destruction- ‘to Coventrate’.
