About the Author
How culpable are we in the events that define our history? Bob Bailey did not join the International Brigade in the Spanish civil war. Instead, he finds adventure at home in 1930's Cheltenham. Or rather, it is visited upon him as he becomes an unwitting accomplice in one of European history's most notorious air attacks. But those responsible pick on someone who is more than he seems. The wilful Bob values his independence, however it is lifelong friend Ada whose help he needs when his problems become gravely serious. This story of youthful hope, abuse of position and bloody mindedness tells how our actions can have far-reaching and unintended consequences.
