By Rex Williams
This is not only a story of people living in the small country town of Crawley fifty years ago.
It also tells of the glamour and excitement of war, seen through the naïve eyes of a schoolboy. But the harsh reality is there also; the terrible losses suffered by merchant seamen; the German bombing of civilian targets.
Only the Royal Air Force fighter aircraft could stop this bombing, only the Royal Air Force bombers could hit back.
This is a short book about people of different nationalities.
The Canadian sergeant who looked serious as he wrote letters, the English soldier who woke up in a mortuary, the German U Boat captain who ignored his military training and the French farmer who lost all he possessed.
