A few months of married bliss, a lovers' nest in Darrowby and the wonders of home cooking are rudely interrupted for James Herriot by the Second World War.

From the author whose books inspired the BBC series All Creatures Great and Small, Vets Might Fly, James Herriot's fifth volume of memoirs relocates him to a training camp somewhere in England. And in between square pounding and digging for victory, he dreams of the people and livestock he left behind him.

In the media

There are funny cases, sad cases, farm animals and pets, downright farmers, ladies of refinement, hard-bitten NCOs and of course, the immortal Siegfried and Tristan.
The Sunday Times
Another winner... as always hilariously funny.
The Sunday Telegraph
It is a pleasure to be in James Herriot's company.
