Publisher's Synopsis

The Second World War left no corner of Europe unaffected, and was to touch lives in every country. Young British librarian Len Manwaring was no exception; answering his country's call to arms, he would soon discover a life turned upside down when he enlisted in the Royal Air Froce and saw a tour of duty which involved time serving in North America and South Africa as well as closer to home in a United Kingdom that was fighting the constant threat of invasion. Yet just as difficult for Len was the prospect of leaving behind Joan, the girl he loved, with whom he would correspond throughout the entirety of the war. Now, in this special anthology of letters, airgrpahs and other authentic materials from the time, Gay Manwaring presents the remarkable story of her parents' extraordinary romance, set against the backdrop of an era-defining global conflict.
