Spine ends and corners lightly bumped. No dust wrapper, as issued.

It is 'chock-full of D-Day mementos tucked into ... compartments from Eisenhower's handwritten notes to the troops to a replica of the tag on a grenade pin. Highlights among the texts included in pockets and fake manila envelopes are a disarmingly quaint "Pocket Guide to France," with line drawings and common French phrases on the back; a reproduction of the front page of the New York Times from June 6 with news of the "Great Invasion" in bold letters; and the Operational Orders for the 29th infantry division, stamped "top secret" in red across the top.'; Book will not fit safely in an International Priority Mail envelope.

'Elizabeth Bowen is absolutely brilliant at completely capturing the world that she is writing about. Laced with secrets and adolescent awkwardness, the bitterness of teenage betrayal, "The Death of the Heart" is an exquisitely written novel. When I look back over this novel, I think of fur coats and London fog, tea by the fire, the sudden ringing of telephones and the desolate sound of heels on an empty hall floor.'

Special attention is paid to the huge role played by women, the young and old, and those who came from other countries and continents to offer their help.
