In war-torn England, in September 1941, thirteen-year-old Harry Lockwood steps off the train and embarks on his new life at Markham College, a boys' boarding school near London.

As if this is not enough, Hitler's bombardment of Britain with terrifying V1 flying bombs and V2 ballistic missiles threatens to destroy him.

Harry's tale is one of lost innocence, of war, of loyalty and of love.

    Thrilling, intense and heartwarming.

    As England is continually battered by German forces during World War II, Harry Lockwood takes his first steps into his own war. His first year at the prestigious Markham College is a mix of excitement, fear and trepidation as he makes new friends, becomes a victim to the sadistic traditions of the school and attempts to survive both war-time and adolescence.

    As the war rages, Harry and his friends must contend with the rigors of higher education, harsh corporal punishment by both prefects and headmaster while understanding the emotions stirred within them by the females from the local all girls school. Harry soon stumbles into love with a girl named Jenny. Throwing caution to the wind he breaks school rules and jeopardizes his own life to be with her.

    Will his newly found love last? Will he survive the abuse of Markham College only to become a casualty of war as German bombs fall from the sky?

    The intense realism of "Harry's War" is evident throughout the book. Author D. Edward Bradley does a superb job of controlling the flow of this marvelous tale by easing the action with both humor and sadness. His use of drama, joy, despair and fear makes "Harry's War" tangible for readers. You feel the emotions the characters feel; you see, in your mind, what they see.

    Bradley's writing is as refreshing as a cold drink of water on a hot day. His development of the characters is handled with such care. The kids grow and become adults right before your eyes. Bradley uses few words to describe the setting but it is the exact amount needed to paint a vivid picture.

    "Harry's War" is a gem hidden in the mass of books that are rarely discovered. If you love romance, action, strife, perseverance and well written prose I highly recommend "Harry's War."
