Preface[]

"During World War II, hundreds of thousands of British children were sent to the countryside, away from those cities most at risk of being bombed during the Blitz. Thousands more young war guests were sent overseas through late 1939 up until the fall of 1940, to places like Canada and Australia, to keep them safe from the bombs and the fear of an invasion by Hitler."
