    A moving & insightful account of 4 months of fear, danger & sacrifice experienced by a swathe of the population of southern England through the summer of 1940. The account accompanies contemporaneous accounts with fascinating morsels of historical perspective for example Hitler's future intentions for the British male population of fighting age once Britain had been defeated.

    Having read his book on Monte Cassino I picked this one to read next. Sadly it has so far been a disappointment. The style and content are very different and it came across to me as more vox pop. If you like to read personal accounts then it will have appeal but sadly maybe I have read too many BoB books for this one to stand out. No it is going back to the library... there are too many others in the queue.

    A book that draws you in, it doesn't simply slap you round the face with facts. The people in it were and are real, alive. I even shed a tear when it was revealed that a young pilot was killed, leaving his sweetheart with a picture and memories.
