To War with the Walkers

To War with the Walkers


By Annabel Venning

The miraculous story of the Walkers, six siblings who survived Blitz, battle and internment and whose incredible experiences tell a new social history of WW2, told by historian and Walker descendant Annabel Venning.

An extraordinary, compelling picture of a family entwined in the Second World War. Weaving the lives of brothers, sisters, wives, husbands and lovers seamlessly and with vivid clarity, its scope is epic, the sweep majestic, the story at turns funny, sad, redemptive and tragic. Fabulous. — James Holland
