I’m involved in a collection of short stories to be published in early November to mark the 75th anniversary of the Battle of Pearl Harbor, which took place on 7th December 1941.

History: a thing of the past?

Book One - Corrected - High Resolution

Today, I’m delighted to welcome guest blogger Olga Swan, who also lives in SW France. Lamplight, the first in her David Klein, war-reporter, series is released tomorrow by Crooked Cat. Olga’s post gives us a flavour of her series, which spans the build-up to World War II and the war itself, and outlines some of the universal questions it raises. I’m looking forward to reading it.
