Hardington Mandeville, A Peewit in Wartime – A Child’s War in Somerset


SKU: 1171 Category:


(Gordon Rendell).  The author, aged three at the start of the war in 1939, experienced the following six years with a sharp intensity.  Having an enquiring mind and time of his hands, he studied the village characters and was often caught up in their activities.

At the age of seven he could be asked to cycle over to a local farmer to sort out his stationary engine, normally the float chamber full of hay seeds.

There are several quality group photographs, and the author has been able to name a fair number of them.

112 pages.  Hardback.
