At the school where Edward Enderby taught for over forty years, there were few who knew he'd been a successful fighter pilot during the war. It was not something he ever talked about, not even to his family. And for over half a century he had, for the most part, managed to put the memories of those years out of his mind. But fifty years on, he is alone - a widower - with a strained relationship with his only son, and a career behind him that has brought him respect but little affection. In 1995, Britain is celebrating the anniversary of the end of the war, and Edward finds himself forced to confront the tragedy he suffered during those years. As he travels from England to Malta and then to Italy he comes face to face with the idealistic young man he once was, and the devastated and traumatised 23 year old he was to become
