In 1939, Geoffrey Lee Williams and his twin Alan, age 9, were evacuated to Hartley in Kent - the first of their four evacuations between the outbreak of war and 1944. Between billets they returned to London and during the final phase of the Blitz they enrolled as National Fire Service messengers. Above all, the book conveys the intense desire of the boys to contribute to the war effort and their growing awareness of unfolding events.
