Among the destroyed factories were the main Fires of Coventry book factory, the Humber Hillman factory, the Alfred Herbert Ltd machine tool works, nine aircraft factories, and two naval ordnance stores. Another guardsman, while going to his backpack tank, got disoriented and had to run for his life as the flames leaped ahead of him among the tree tops. But he has to put it all aside and join his brethren to fight the fires that threaten his world. The fire — the first of the Rhode Island forest fires — destroyed a cord of wood, damaged a garage and threatened three homes. The cause might have been even worse than arson. In Coventry's case, these included cars, bicycles, aeroplane engines and, sincemunitions factories.

Then later that month fires broke out in New Jersey — coincidentally near an Army base. Furthermore, a technical mistake caused jamming countermeasures to be ineffective. The FBI was going to investigate all of these fires, but never revealed what they found. Mopping-up operations would continue into the next day to make sure the fires were out. Author Ian Fleming wrote once is happenstance, twice is coincidence, three times is enemy action. I was mad for this book.

By looking so closely at this community, she opens Fires of Coventry book the entire world, and it's an amazing experience. The book also woke me to the fact that so many hapless, silent, and stoic women of that period not only lost their husbands in one war, but they turned around to lose their sons in the next one — a truly persecuted generation. Humphreys pays tribute to this forgotten cohort with great sensitivity, without lapsing into sentimentality. The rest of the book occurs on November 14, and takes us through the night as the three characters make their way through the burning city and react to the destruction, heartbreak and devastation that they encounter.
