By Melvyn Bragg

The sequel to A Soldier’s Return, this is a book about the effects of war rather than war itself. It follows the story of a Burma veteran returning home to Cumbria where his daily life, and that of his family, reveal the social, political and economic issues facing rural England in the decade after the end of the war. There are no gory battle scenes or sensational action here but the struggles and tensions are just as dramatic.
