A Wind on the Heath
By James Pattinson
When David Sterne went up to London to seek his fortune, Adolf Hitler was rampant and the shadow of impending conflict lay forebodingly over Europe. He was still struggling to make a living when war broke out and he was swept into it.
Six years of his life were to be spent in the King’s uniform. And so began his dramatic climb to success – with a little help from Frederica Lathwell. Then, of course, there was Angela Street . . .
James Pattinson (1915-2009) was a full-time author who, despite having travelled throughout the world, lived in the remote village where he grew up. He wrote magazine articles, short stories and radio features as well as numerous novels including Crane and The Silent Voyage.
