This is the story of World War 11 seen through the eyes of two people – one English and one German. Starting in the early 20th century, the authors describe the lives of their ancestors in Britain and Germany, and their experiences living through World War 11.
With the help of her mother’s notes and letters, Tessa writes a poignant account of bombings, hardship and the death of her father in the Battle of the Atlantic. Through Martin’s eyes, we learn how he survived the Dresden firebombing, escaped from communist East Germany and how ordinary Germans suffered.
They met, married and raised a family in Canada and made several return visits to East Germany during and after the Communist era. We hope this first hand account from "both sides" will lead the reader towards a better understanding of the conditions which led up to World War 11.
