What did they remember?
Was it all misery?
Did they wave the flags when the ceasefire happened?
Did they actually – miss – it?
Instead of just writing up what they said I have used (with their permission) their stories and recollections as a basis to form various stories. Names and places have been changed and various stories have been altered for dramatic purposes.
But this is really what the book is about.
A chance for people to look back.
To laugh, to cry, to relive the pain, the sorrow and the good times.
To make you live again.
