Heroes & Villains of Worcestershire

326 pages3 hours


The great, the good, and the very, very bad from Worcestershire's past live again in this informative, lively, and entertaining collection of more than 460 mini-biographies of county men and women from across the centuries. All of human life is here, from composers to conmen, from military men—and a woman—to medical pioneers and nineteenth-century manufacturers, from daring explorers to one of the great entertainers of the music hall era. The county can claim many more who were either born or lived here for a major part of their lives, who made their mark with colorful enterprise or diligent toil. All of them called Worcestershire home and their contribution to its rich and varied history is remembered here in this well-researched and engaging book.
