Love conquers all - Relive the intense WWII love story of a 22 year old French airman named Francis Usai and his 19 year old girlfriend living in Liverpool named Barbara Harper-Nelson in this fascinating, true story told through their original letters and diaries. Amazingly, she kept the letters (over 2,000 pages of correspondence) from this witty and amusing young French airman, exiled from his conquered country and based near York, from where he undertook nightly missions into the horrendous firestorm that was the Battle of the Ruhr. The Bright Squadrons: A True Story of Love and War is an evocative tale of young love in a time of courage, uncertainty, loss and the threat of permanent separation. It's a gripping, heart-warming read.
