The long wait is over. Flights of Fantasy, my evocation of a life during and between the two World Wars is available for pre-order now.
It’s a book everyone will enjoy – especially Liverpudlians. City life at the end of the Great War, the interwar peace, the events that led inexorably to the Second World War. Readers can emphasise with the experiences of the AFS (Auxiliary Fire Service) as they heroically, fought the fires created during the Luftwaffe Blitz over Merseyside in 1940-41.
But it’s also a book that will appeal directly to aviation enthusiasts and those with an interest in the history of the first half of the 20th Century. And not forgetting the raison d’être behind the book, the superb pictures.
It’s an ideal book, one that will make an excellent Christmas present. Some early reviews:
“I got to follow George on his journey and be right in the action as battles raged during both wars. The ‘scenes’ are epic and death defying! I fell in love with the charismatic character of Iggy and hoped he’d survive to the end of the book, but you’ll need to read it to find out.”… Suzanne Lau .
“I was honoured when George asked me to proof read his new book, it’s a task which requires objectivity, but I was so enthralled with it that I read from front to back. Then I read it again. It’s a fascinating book providing a very readable insight into Liverpool life, during peace and war. Not to mention the artwork that changes with the developments in aviation. Enjoy it and then leave it on your coffee table for your visitors to enjoy as well.“… Colin McMorris.
