The Story of British Evacuees to North America in World War II
Why would British parents risk sending their children to safety over submarine-infested waters? How would American and Canadian families and public respond to them? What adventures would the children experience and what would be the long-term effect on their lives and on attitudes on both sides of the Atlantic?
This book sheds light on an aspect of World War II that is little known on either side of the Atlantic. It is a tale that is at times moving, often humorous, evoking an authentic picture of life and attitudes sixty years ago. It is a saga of separation, a story of unashamed patriotism and a very readable contribution to the literature of World War II.
