Product Description:

Farmer author and broadcaster Arthur (A.G.) Street was one of the leading voices of British agriculture during the Second World War. His daughter Pamela - herself an aspiring writer - was 18 when war broke out. David her future husband served with the 4th RHA in North Africa. Using their previously unpublished diaries and letters Miranda McCormick - Pamela's daughter - tells the candid story of a Wiltshire family living and working at a time when 'a little German with a black paint-brush moustache turned the world upside down'. Their very different experiences of war are woven into one masterful narrative of love duty and separation during a time of national adversity. Detailing the sudden rise of her tenant farmer father to the status of a national celebrity Pamela's service as a VAD nurse and in the ATS as well as her unofficial fiance's detainment in German and Italian prison camps this is a story told with an almost allegorical simplicity. Intimate and personal this vivid account of 'ordinary life' during extraordinary times is also the chronicle of a generation for whom farming was the fourth line of defence.
