James Ashfield is a young man from Birmingham, sent to Germany to fight alongside his brother in WW2. The events that took place led to his return home with haunting memories he could not erase.

His mind in turmoil, James was left feeling hopeless, until he is given a life-changing opportunity to pursue a dream that had remained his secret since childhood.

Life finally seems to start getting better for James until forbidden love, heartache and a pursuit for revenge turn his whole world upside down once more.

A British War Dance is the first novel from Lee Willmore. Lee was born and raised in the Sandwell area of the West Midlands and now resides in Kent. He has a keen interest in dance and the war time era, both of which were his inspiration for his story.

    Really enjoyed this book, read it within a day and I am really looking forward to reading more from this author.

  • John Leete - Historian, Journalist, Broadcaster

    ‘This first title from the Author has evolved from his interest in and study of Britain’s home front.

    The meaning of the title becomes clear on page 68 by which time the storyline in this work of fiction has been well established and the subject of dance as the underlying theme makes for an interesting take on life during wartime.

    Cleverly weaving threads throughout this novel are tales of love and of passion and friendship and sacrifice, all that you would expect of life in dangerous and challenging times when you loved for the day for tomorrow, well who knows what tomorrow will bring.

    This is a light, enjoyable and well presented read. A refreshing escape from the heavy works of non-fiction about the war.

  • Rebecca Haw ( Professional Ballerina, Semperoper Ballett)

    A time old tale of love and hate, told simply and charmingly. This short story targeted at adolescents lacks accuracy at times but makes up for this with enthusiasm. Willmore's inspiration for his book, both dance and the war era, could have benefited from more in depth research. An enjoyable read and a good first attempt at novel surrounding classical ballet.
