That Summer by Andrew Greig

That Summer

Andrew Greig

Reading this will make you think again about war, and care about the characters portrayed - ordinary people in extraordinary times. An easy but involving read.

Extract

It was a summer seen through heat haze. They were very young men who flew and fought, killed and died over the English countryside, and those who were not killed were back in the pubs that evening. They were seldom serious; serious was not their style.
