|Plot Summary of Vera & Eddy's War|
Europe - the Second World War was a war that involved everyone, not just a few generals and politicians, but every member of every family. Devon, England - Vera & Eddy meet and get married but are soon overtaken by extraordinary events of war. From almost comical preparations to repel an invasion and grim reality of enemy air attacks, to the almost surreal spectacle of D-Day and the fighting that followed; Vera & Eddy lived through it and dealt with it in their individual ways. For Eddy, the breakout from Normandy and the advance through Belgium and Holland to the German border, was a time that brought him to the brink of destruction in ways that the word, "destruction", is inadequate to define. Non-fiction (contains true life scenes that some readers might find disturbing). This book is delivered in both HTML and Microsoft Reader versions.
(Gritty and often brutally honest. Sam Smith tells it faithfully, the way Vera & Eddy told it. A book that shatters some of the rose-tinted myths about the British at war.)
