At the time when it was written it was thought probable that war with Germany would come before long, and there was much activity in England over Air Raid Precautions. Most of these activities at that time were directed to countering bombing attacks by gas bombs, and there was little realisation by the public of the devastation that would be caused by high explosive or by fire.

This book deals with a war that is about to happen and is a cautionary tale. It piqued my interest as to what it really was like to live in England during the war.

I grew up in Portsmouth during the war years. Neville's portrayal of a family in nearby Southampton during those years is a parallel to my experience at the same time. As always, Neville is the supreme story teller, with a very strong edge of reality.

An attempt to outline the possible affects of bombing on a population, written pre world war 2. The novel is worse that reality appears to have been. Getting a bit long in tooth, but and interesting insight to fears of the population in the UK in 1930s.

A good story as usual has boats in it, a bit dish appointed in its ending.
I am reading my way through Nevil Shute, rediscovering what a brilliant author he was. While this is not one of my favourites, it is still a worthwhile read, he certainly had an acute uderstanding of human nature and how we think and act in all situations. Definitely worth a read.
