Members and friends of an Anglo-French community in Paris share their first-hand experiences of war and conflict, predominantly during World War II in France and in Britain, but also in more recent conflicts. Some of the accounts are movingly short, others longer and more assured; some 'made the headlines', while others have never been recounted before. All the contributors - as children, civilians, or servicemen and women - tell fascinating and important stories, and the collection is illustrated throughout with personal and family photographs, documents and sketches. In the words of the Editor, 'I bid you to read on'.
