About the author

Neal James (pen name), an account from Derbyshire began writing in 2007 when one of his short stories made it into the top ten of an international competition. He realised that he had a wealth of factual information at his fingertips which he could convert into fiction. His background is that of a miner’s son. Educated through the state system to degree level, he found work after college in accounting and that is where his qualifications lie. However, a broad industrial working life has provided him with sufficient data to mould a number of plotlines into novels. Neal James is the author of “A Ticket to Tewkesbury” and “Short Stories Volume One”, “Two Little Dicky Birds” and “Threads of Deceit”. There has been coverage of Neal’s work in the local press; The Derby Evening Telegraph, The Ripley & Heanor News, and the Derbyshire and Radio Derby.

WAR? DEATH AND DESTRUCTION? VIOLENCE, HATRED, INEXPRESSIBLE GRIEF? PEOPLES PITTED AGAINST EACH OTHER, TO THE DEATH? WHY ON EARTH SHOULD I WANT TO READ ABOUT IT? THERE’S ENOUGH IN THE MEDIA EVERY DAY, SURELY? YES: BUT THIS IS DIFFERENT. The stories in this Anthology aim to give a vivid insight, through a fascinating mixture of history, reminiscence and fiction, into life during WWII: for those at the front, those left behind, the young at school, the old in the twilight of their years, parents, lovers, spouses, families, colleagues; Britons, Germans, Irish, Kenyans, French, eastern Europeans and Americans (plus the odd ‘undesirable alien’!). These pages see householders struggling to maintain a semblance of normality; young men reluctant to volunteer; soldiers determined to win; acts of generosity, acts of cowardice. In these pages, there is violence – impossible to avoid in an Anthology dedicated to the memory of war – but there is also humour and romance, suspense and emotion, heroism and daring. Even the paranormal puts in an appearance (as one might say). The action is set variously in France, Britain, Eire, Kenya, Russia, Poland ... You are guaranteed hours of stimulation, enjoyment and fruitful relaxation with a book devoted to one of the defining events of our times. STARE INTO THE PAST WITH THE EYES OF THOSE GRIPPED BY ITS DRAMA. All the stories have been especially written for this Anthology by writers experienced in their field. Pneuma Springs is proud to present it to commemorate seventy years after the end of hostilities.
