Civilians had no weapons to fight the enemy, but they had heart, courage, and determination. Although they saw none of the atrocities servicemen faced, they witnessed death and appalling carnage. This account salutes the extraordinary courage of the fire services, who wept as they searched for survivors among the dead and dying. The voluntary services comforted those with nothing left but their lives. This novel looks not at the glory and courage of the annually honoured Military personnel, festooned with medals and the laying of Remembrance Day poppies. It engages with the unsung heroes, who served, suffered, bled, and died due to fanatical world leaders for whom there is no cenotaph or memorial. The war tore apart the Pearl family and emotionally impacted them for many years. The story evolves when two orphaned siblings arrive at the home of their Grandmother
