From the author of Fields of Little America and many other books comes these 16 tales of people and places caught up in the Second World War. 

In November 1943 Captain James Maitland Stewart left Hollywood for an airbase in rural Norfolk where he flew Liberators on many bombing missions.

Glenn Miller ‘disappeared’ in December 1944, ostensibly over the English Channel. However, was this the true story? Sentimental Journey casts a new light on that most famous of disappearances. 

In The Day the Luftwaffe Stayed for Breakfast the crew of a German fighter are given tea and hospitality before being shipped to a POW camp. 

The stories of Blickling and Bradenham Hall are intertwined with Americans training in Norfolk, marriages to servicemen and crashes throughout East Anglia. 

Christmas celebrations throughout the bases are remembered and Zurich Nights is the exciting story of escape from neutral Switzerland. 

Interspersed are reminiscences of ordinary people caught up in war.
