The effect of American WW2 airmen on an English village
on 20 April 2002
I enjoyed this book which although viewing life in WW2 from a different viewpoint, was nevertheless quite gripping in that one wished to know what would happen to these diverse people, some of whom lived in what, to a comparitively wealthy American, would appear to be abject poverty. The effect on the lives of both the villagers and the 'Yanks' was quite graphically depicted and, as it was in WW2, there was no neatly wrapped up ending, more a satisfactory conclusion to a confusing episode in the lives of villagers who previously would rarely venture beyond the nearest county town if that.
