Chicago, 1941: Ray, a simple farm worker, makes his way across the US to join the war effort as an RAF fighter pilot. With little experience -- of life or war -- Ray's journey will take him further away from home than he expects. In Ludwigshafen, Germany, Erich and Gerda try to raise their young family, cursing the futility of the war whenever the air raid sirens sound. Each time they take shelter in their town's above ground bunker, they don't know how much devastation and death they will see when they emerge. 28 Bunkers tells the story of World War II from many viewpoints -- Brits, US airmen and Germans -- as it unfolds. Expertly researched, this novel explodes the myths of the war and gives a unique insight into what it was like for the unsung heroes and victims to live through its horrors and joys.
