About this title:

Synopsis:

Russell Margerisan writes of the dangerous but strangely unreal world of the World War 2 air gunner, sitting high in the turret of a bomber over Europe, wrapped in several layers of clothes and awed by the destructive beauty of the scene below. His role was to keep a lookout for enemy fighters and to take a shot at them if they gave him the chance.
After many raids Margweison's plane was shot down. Weeks on the run with the Belgian underground were followed by many months of captivity in Germany. He describes the events of January 1945 when for eighteen days nearly 1500 prisoners were marched through blizzards to another camp, surviving on an inch of soup a day. A few months later, the prisoners' new camp was 'liberated' by the Russians, but the author's adventures were not yet over. When Russell Margerison eventually cam home to Lancashire, he was still six months short of his twenty-first birthday.
This second edition includes a sequel tellin of his return, fifty-nine years after he was shot down, to visit the Belgians who risked everything to help him.
'Boys At War' is a minor classic of the Other Ranks' war' - Daily Mail
'This vivid story tells of just a few indiviuals - but in its meticulous accuracy and totally honest recall - it paints a picture far more real than any history book or idealised film could do'. - Manchester Evening News
'It is absolute reality - often terrifying but never without boyish hopefulness and British humour - A real-life thriller.' - Accrington Observer

About the Author: Russell Margerison was born to a very poor Lancashire family and is the only survivor of six children, four of them dying before he was born. As a secondary modern schoolboy, he was always happy at school but was more interested in sport than academic subjects. He joined the air force at the age of eighteen, in 1943, and trained as an air gunner. He took part in raids over Germany before being shot down over Belgium, sheltered by the resistance and eventually taken prisoner. In his civilian life, he served an apprenticeship as a compositor with the then Northern Daily Telegraph, Blackburn, and spent most of his working life in printing; for the last fifteen years he was employed by the Manchester Evening News and the Guardian. Around two years after the end of the war he married Betty Coldwell from Huddersfield, who had been the girlfriend of Frank Moody who unfortunately perished when Russell's aircraft was shot down. They have four sons and at the time of going to press have been married fifty-nine years.
