About the Author

Anne Crowley Ford was brought up in the County Cork but emigrated to America as a young woman, dying in Arizona in 1968. Toward the end of her life, she wrote this unforgettable memoir of her life in Ireland and how she came to leave for a foreign land. It was edited by her son, Daniel Ford, who has spent a lifetime reading and writing about the wars of the past hundred years, from the Irish rebellion of 1916 to the counter-guerrilla operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. He is best known for his history of the American Volunteer Group--the 'Flying Tigers' of the Second World War--and his Vietnam novel that was filmed as Go Tell the Spartans, starring Burt Lancaster. Most recently, he has turned to the invasion of Poland in 1939 by Germany and Soviet Russia. He lives and works in New Hampshire.
