The city of Bath is unique. Much of it built during the reigns of four kings called George over a period of only one hundred years. Its three thousand ornate Georgian buildings form the heart of one of the most complete and beautiful cities in the world. But for how much longer? As the 1960’s unfolded, great social upheaval was matched by potential destruction from developers and change in the city. Perhaps, even more devastating than the bombs of the Luftwaffe twenty years earlier. £5 OFF £19.99 RRP IF YOU ORDER HERE
Born in the wartime German raids on Bath in the Spring of 1942, an orphan boy, alone and destitute, is determined to survive. The city is immersed in a cycle of greed, abuse of privilege, corruption and demolition as it struggles out of post-war gloom and austerity. Demolish and rebuild or preserve and protect at all costs? The boy, now a man, is bent on success and wealth, whatever the personal sacrifice and cost to England’s finest Georgian city.
