In Survivors of War, traverse the gripping journey from the streets of England to far-flung battlefields, spanning the years from 1931 to a post-war Christmas in 1949. This emotionally charged narrative grapples with a poignant question: How can one find joy and fulfilment after witnessing the horror and brutality of war?

The story delves into the psyche of a young man forever changed by the atrocities he encountered during World War II. Explore the transformative elements – love, friendship, and perhaps a dash of serendipity – that offer the resilience to overcome the lingering scars of battle.

The other stories in this selection cover a range of genre including crime (‘The Parcel’, ‘Behind Closed Doors’), mystery (‘The Mists of Time’, ‘Is My Twin My Sister?’), Sci-Fi (‘Phantom Island Refuge’), and romance (‘Similitude’, ‘When One Door Closes’). The stories tease the reader’s imagination in a variety of locations and scenarios.

Nigel Power was born a year before the outbreak of WW2, within 20 miles of central London. He studied mathematics and music at university before following a career in education based in the West Midlands. Retiring in 2005, he relocated to a village in Dorset, where he continues to play the organ in the village church. In March 2020, his wife, for whom he had been her full-time carer for nearly ten years, was admitted to a care home. When the national Covid lockdown began eight days later, Nigel began writing short stories. This book contains the second collection of his stories to be published.
