Books we wished we published…

Moondroptogascony As part of the preparations for the publication of  “Worrals of the WAAF” we’ve been researching the real-life stories of women who were parachuted into occupied Europe in the Second World War. There are many gripping and inspiring accounts, but this one by Anne-Marie Walters, is the pick so far. There’s no lack of danger or bravery, but she also conveys the youthful excitement and bravado in the Resistance movement, and also the profound love of France that motivated so many of its members. No surprise then that it should have been brought back into print by Moho Books, who focus on ‘books with a strong sense of place’. We love Pan’s original cover, but Moho’s new version also has a foreword by the historian of SOE M R D Foot and an introduction and notes by David Hewson.
