The Road to Berlin (Until the Night Book 2)
The Road to Berlin is the second book of the Until the Night Series and is set in October 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 an unlikely inner peace up on the High Wold of Lincolnshire while all around him the world is enveloped in madness.
It is October 1943 and Bomber Command is gathering itself for what many in the High Command believe will be its final victorious campaign; but even the true believers in the ‘main aim’ know that the coming winter battle will be bloodier than anything which has gone before.
Here in the heart of rural England, in Lincolnshire and elsewhere on the East Coast airfields of the Main Force all the years of building up and preparation are about to come to fruition and everybody knows that this is the lull before the coming storm.
For Adam Chantrey, looking forward to the fifth year of his personal odyssey duty has become his watchword, and life on the squadrons his only reality. And then one day while waiting for a train that is late, he encounters a different fate. And afterwards, nothing will ever be the same again.
But for a man like Adam Chantrey who lives his life rubbing shoulders with the countless ghosts of the never ending war with the distant cities, who dreams are filled with burning aircraft falling into clouds soaked like mile upon mile of blood-soaked cotton wool, what has hope become?
