Taking the diary of Mary Smith, the daughter of the village Postmaster - in which she briefly recorded the news headlines of the day and any local events that affected her - Dennis Knight has skilfully woven around her b ri ef a cc ou nt a na rrative which unfolds gradually to reveal the truly cataclysmic effect of The Battle of Britain on an innocent and peaceful community...."
