Eigenlijk geeft de subtitel beter waar het boek over gaat, namelijk de geschiedenis van de Britse ‘kolonie’ in Ieper in het interbellum, hun vlucht bij het begin van de tweede wereldoorlog en hun lotgevallen in het verdere verloop van de oorlog. Aan de hand van herinneringen van overlevenden (vooral kinderen van de Britse school die elf jaar lang bestond in Ieper; hun ouders waren meestal werknemers van de dienst die instond voor het onderhoud van de talrijke Britse oorlogskerkhoven) laat de auteur zien hoe de geschiedenis van individuele levens een deeltje werd in de maalstroom van de grote geschiedenis.
