Book Overview

Alistair Horne was a "Bundle from Britain" - one of the children evacuated to America from the war in Europe. In these evocative reflections, fifty years on, he tells the story of the dramatic upheaval and the very different circumstances in which he found himself on his arrival in the United States, and on his later return to his homeland as a member of the RAF. This is more than the story of Alistair Horne's war: it is a portrait of life in pre-war England, of his remarkable mother and her tragic death, of his growing relationship, of his sometimes horrifying education, and, most of all, of the beginning of his very "special relationship" with America. This wonderfully entertaining memoir brings to the fore young Alistair's first glimpses of America. He experiences firsthand life in early 1940s New York and then heads off to Garrison, New York, to live with the Cutler family. Schooled at Millbrook Academy, he meets and befriends William F. Buckley, Jr. All the while, whether in Garrison, at Millbrook, or in New York City, Alistair never misses news on war-torn England and patiently waits for the day he can return. A genuinely valuable historical document, A Bundle From Britain is written with wit and charm. It stands as an important chronicle of the middle years of this century, as seen through the eyes of one of the world's most distinguished historians.
