The Big City (Until the Night Book 3)
The Big City is the third book of the Until the Night series and is set in November 1943.
The Until the Night Series is about Bomber Command in the winter of 1943-44 and follows the experience of Adam Chantrey, a 25-year old veteran of the bombing war sent to Ansham Wolds in Lincolnshire to rebuild a shattered Lancaster squadron.
Exhausted and tormented by his own demons he discovers, amidst the chaos of war and loss, love and an unlikely inner peace up on the High Wold of Lincolnshire while all around him the world is enveloped in madness.
It was in November 1943 that Bomber Command commenced a campaign to level Berlin from end to end; at stake was the tantalizing prospect of knocking Germany out of the war by the spring of 1944. The fabled ‘main aim’ of the bomber war briefly beckoned, and like a siren’s call it began to lure the Main Force to its doom.
But all that was in an unknown and an unknowable future; in the beginning hope died hard. For Adam Chantrey this is just the latest battle and he is not alone in having to come to terms with the new realities of a cruel world.
