Abstract:

Mid-winter, 1943, Britain is gripped by intense cold and the darkest days of the war. There is no escape from the conflict - it has snaked into every part of everyone's lives. RAF Officer Paget is heading home fro Christmas aboard a train packed with service men and women, back to his parents and the resurrection of a passion he thought was long over. Srgeant Harris sits in a freezing hut on Salisbury Plain wishing he could stop teaching green troops and see some real action. In the requisitioned Grange, Lieutenant Miller does not know how to celebrate Christmas so ar from his home in the United States. Sergeant Fred Weber is enjoying fishing off the coast of occupied Jersey. His calm is soon to be shatttered as his war takes on a violent twist. Each man is heading inexorably towards the beaches of France where their fate will be decided.
