1st Edition HB 1987
Hardback with dustjacket. First published in the UK in 1987 by
"Leo Cooper (Pen & Sword)". Printer N/K. Written by Bruce Lewis.
This tells the adventures of four men of difference nationalities who
found themselves caught up in the maelstrom of the Second World War.
Each of them told their stories to Bruce Lewis, who has skilfully managed to
preserve the idiosyncrasies of their contrasting cultures and backgrounds.
One of them, George Paine, served with the 1st Airborne Division at Arnhem.
Bruce Lewis grew up in Wales and later joined the Navy. During the
early days of WW2 , when it became clear that England most needed defence
from the air, he volunteered for the RAF. He flew with Lancaster bombers and
survived 35 operations. He later went on to become widely known as a broadcaster
for the BBC and ITV.
