All of them must, to varying degrees, have been marked by their experiences - experiences that were, at times, both unpleasant and most disturbing. The Evacuees consists of thirty-three accounts by a random sample of those children. Some have become well-known; others are unknown to the general public; but the way evacuation affected them all is evident from what they write. ***This book is not history, though Mr. Johnson in his introduction places evacuation in its historical context - the facts and figures are themselves appalling. The accounts in the book are personal and subjective. It is a truism that anyone can write well about his childhood: when that childhood includes evacuation, the quality of writing from people who do not primarily consider themselves writers can be very high indeed, as more than a few pieces in this book confirm. ***Not all the contributions are in the form of reminiscences. There are extracts from novels and poems and a letter written at the age of fifteen by a boy to his parents who had threatened to evacuate him and his sister to Australia. Not everyone was evacuated within Britain: some tell of what it was like to be sent to Australia or Canada or the U.S.A.' (Quote from blurb to inside front of dustwrapper blurb). ***First impression of the true first edition, complete in its original dustwrapper. A nice reading copy of the first edition. ***For all our books, postage is charged at cost, allowing for packaging: any shipping rates indicated on ABE are an average only: we will reduce the P & P charge where appropriate - please contact us for postal rates for heavier books and sets etc. Seller Inventory # 6031
