Book description
From the dust jacket: This is the first important novel to come out of the war. Powerful, dramatic, deeply moving, its action is compressed within the space of one tense and critical month in the late summer of 1940. The heroic evacuation of Dunkirk was over and the war had been brought to England - a war in which blackouts and bombing raids had become daily realities. But it was still new and unnerving to Prue that night when she and Clive lay tensely awake in the darkness of their seaside hotel and heard the German planes come over. In terms of its poignant and unforgettable love story, This Above All brings in to sharp focus the panorama of a whole nation fighting not only to defend its ancient liberties, but to bring to birth the new and better England that is yet to be.
