The War and Freddy
September 1939 - Freddy is three, and the Second World War begins. Soon it seems to Freddy as though the War with its blackouts, ration books, dried eggs and dried milk, is the only life he's ever known.
Life during wartime can be fun - watching dogfights, playing war games - but hanging over him all the time are images of his missing father and the terrible knowledge that Freddy may never see him again.
Peace finally comes, and Freddy knows that like the millions of others who lived through the end of the war, he will never forget it.
