About This Book

In this vivid memoir, Douglas
Model tells the incredible true story of his wartime childhood in Wembley
amidst the horrors of the Blitz.
Contrasting his peaceful infant life – which
included a hiking holiday to Nazi Germany in 1934 – with the terrors of war,
Douglas remembers his schooling, friendships and childhood mischief alongside
the everyday realities of bombing raids, gas masks and rationing.

Memories of a Wartime Childhood in London provides an invaluable account of significant wartime events through the eyes of a child, including the fall of France, the Dunkirk evacuation, the horrifying discoveries of Nazi concentration camps and, at long last, the sweetness of Allied victory.
