Once again, Professor Carl Chinn has
assembled a fascinating collection of chapters on the people and places of the
Black Country. From the furnaces of Bilston to Cradley Heath's chain makers,
Carl shows how the specialist skills of the Black Country allowed the region to
grow and flourish.
Carl tells, too, of the bravery of the
region's regiments in the horrors of the First World War and the terrible price
paid by those who had joined up with such confidence and patriotism.
The Irish connection is also examined along with the history of the little churches and chapels which provided moral strength to the community.
