Book description
WWII as Britain stood alone. The evacuation of children and the Dunkirk evacuation. Joining the Home Guard. The Battle of Britain and the battle of the Atlantic which we were losing. Drastic food rationing leading to the Christmas 1940 Blitz, with the centre of Manchester and the Docklands raging inferno's. The rescuing of terrified and abandoned animals on the streets by Ron, who with Alan had been passed unfit for military service but the third Ken, became an RAF Sunderland flying boat pilot patrolling the unforgiving North Atlantic and Norwegian Sea's, hunting the dreaded U Boats. Alan's photographic expertise gains him a place on a national newspaper as a trainee photographer which developed into a great future. Rons love of animals led him, with the neighborhoods help, to open a sanctuary for waifs and strays. At this time, the world at war, became a reality. From out of the blue, Germany invaded it’s so called ally Russia, while later Japan, Germany's ally, attacked the USA naval fleet at Pearl Harbor causing disastrous results to the American Pacific fleet.
This was the daily lifestyle the three lads and the neighborhood lived through as each day went by.
