Dolly's War

 
9780002254106: Dolly's War

A ghastly English preparatory school is evacuated to the Bahamas during World War II. When their ship is torpedoed by a U-Boat, the boys and their variously hopeless, eccentric teachers are washed up on the jungle shore of Central America, where they survive as best they can.

Punch

From the Back Cover:

Autumn 1941. When Lygon House Private School for Progressive Young People is attacked by a German bomber, the redoubtable headmistress Dolly Bradman decides it is time for evacuation.

Thus it is that the entire school finds itself aboard the SS 'Drayman', heading for a new life in the West Indies.

A tale of shipwreck and survival, of love and lust and education in the darkest jungle climes, 'Dolly’s War' is a gloriously bizarre adventure of the Second World War from the comic genius Peter Tinniswood, creator of 'The Brandons', 'Winston' and the hugely popular 'Tales from a Long Room'.

The pupils and staff of Lygon House, and the characters they meet along the way, constitute a gallery of rogues, grotesques and charmers that will live long in the memory, while the seedy, smoky atmosphere of wartime England and the lush extravagance of the tropics are marvellously evoked.
