This book is the third of a trilogy (the other two being "Colts of Pegasus"
and "Pegasus Attacks") which gives a fictional account of a group of youngsters who volunteered to fight in WW2. This part covers the period after the War from when the 1st British Airborne Division was disbanded at the end of hostilities until the last members of the group of young men rebuilt their lives in the 1950's. Most of the characters are fictional, but are representative of many whom
ex-service readers will recognise.
