My Father Was a Hero

 
9780141012100: My Father Was a Hero

Cole Moreton was a part of the last generation to be brought up on the folklore of the war. His grandfather fought in it, while his father was brought up by his mother alone, during the blitz in London. Their individual experiences had so scarred them that they had stayed strangers to one another and neither ever spoke about their experiences. Then Cole Moreton persuaded both men to tell their painful and harrowing stories. The result is My Father Was a Hero a tender memoir brimming with questions about how families connect and carry their own conflicting histories: a book about war and heroes, fathers and sons.
