This book sheds light on an aspect of World War II that is little known on either side of the Atlantic. It is a tale that is at times moving, often humorous, evoking an authentic picture of life and attitudes sixty years ago. It is a saga of separation, a story of unashamed patriotism, and an important and very readable contribution to the literature of World War II. Innumerable volumes have been written about the transatlantic relationship, but here is a book that goes to its heart, the unbreakable emotional bonds that stretch across a vast ocean.

Vareyma
This is a comprehensive account of much that is known about British children evacuated to North America during WW11. It is, however, very laborious reading, probably too dull for anyone without a special interest in the subject. For a more entertaining account of one boy's experience, read AMERICA LOST AND FOUND: AN ENGLISH BOY'S WARTIME ADVENTURE IN THE NEW WORLD BY Anthony Bailey.

Yellow Judge
I bought this book for my brother-in-law who was a 1939 evacuee. Unlike other reviewers who found it too detailed, he found it accurate and thoroughly enjoyed the research that filled in background information about his experiences.

Shaktit
Excellent coverage of a little-known facet of WWII history.

See You After the Duration: The Story of British Evacuees to North America...
by Michael Henderson

5 Stars....Everything was great and as described...I am very happy with this book

Uleran
Absolutely, one of the worst books I have ever read. What is purported to be a story of British children living in the US is instead an eclectic mishmash of British pre-war politics, introspective yearnings and compilations of nonsensical minutiae. How this book ever got published is an eternal mystery.

Freaky Hook
Henderson is particularly informative about attitudes and events in America, but it is the anecdotes that warm and wring the heart.

SUNDAY TIMES

A touching account of the 10,000 British children evacuated to North America in the early 1940s. Among them the author who, aged eight, found himself sailing through torpedo scares to a new life in Boston.

MAIL ON SUNDAY

His book vividly evokes a lost world of patriotism and stoicism (headline: Aliens in short pants)

TIMES EDUCATIONAL SUPPLEMENT

The great wartime evacuation will not now be forgotten

CHURCH OF ENGLAND NEWSPAPER

A thorough account of the mass evacuation of British children to North America - a moving story of courage under adversity...This montage of different experiences produces a vivid portrait of events moods and atmosphere during a fearful time.

DEVON LIFE

A complete picture of a time forgotten by many - and completely unknown to most. Michael's story also sheds light on the close ties between America and the UK during the Second World War. Michael Henderson's work is personal, informativc and compelling.

WESTERN MORNING NEWS

So, dear readers, do have a box of tissues at your elbow for both the highs and the lows, but above all be moved by the impressive account of a unique period in our recent history

NORTH DEVON JOURNAL

He recounts his experiences in an easy to read and very interesting way
