Demons of Dunkirk - signed
Charlie's mother and father work at a Spitfire factory in the fishing port of Hamble. After a run in with a brutal instructor on the naval training ship Mercury, the teenager finds himself on the run from the British navy. His father hooks him up with William - the Captain of a fishing boat called the White Feather. A few days later, the pair find themselves caught up in the most heroic retreat of WW2 - the Dunkirk evacuation.
This is an unputdownable adventure story woven around the evacuation at Dunkirk and then the D-Day
landings but from a different angle in that the boy in the story is a conscientious objector but can the help he brings to Dunkirk lay his demons to rest? Packed with historical facts but written as fiction
this is a great aid to pupils studying WW2 but also a thrilling read and a crucial reminder to children today of what their ancestors did in preventing what would have resulted in an entirely different
country had the UK been invaded by the Nazis.'
