Description

A moving and exciting story set in the year leading up to the D-Day Landings, when the outcome of the War was still so uncertain. Yorkshire, March 1943, the war hangs in the balance. Mike Dixon, a battle-scarred young lieutenant, seriously doubts whether the Allies can win. Posted to the middle of nowhere, the only bright spot in the black-out is the beautiful ex-debutante ATS driver who collects him from the station. Yet Charlie Carrington only has to open her mouth for Mike to know she’s out of his league. Mike’s new boss is an impossible maverick, brought out of retirement to develop crucial secret weapons for D-Day. But Major-General Hobart has too little time, too few resources and mortal enemies at the War Office who want to see him retired for good. Haunted by his own failure on the disastrous Dieppe raid, Mike is desperate to redeem himself. But proving himself in battle will put more than his own life at risk. Weaving fascinating historical fact with deft, witty and moving story-telling, this book reminds us how very close a call D-Day was, and how things might so easily have turned out differently.
