In 1944, Portsmouth, the formidable Davey Dwyer, known as ‘Moose' to his friends, is working as an engineer in the Navy and dating Sally, the love of his life. The build-up of army and navy servicemen from Canada and America does not sit comfortably with Davey, who considers anyone north of Port Creek to be an ‘outsider'. When Dwyer finds himself caught up in a fight with four American soldiers, he wakes up in a police cell to face a life-changing decision. After being torn away from Sally, Davey is enlisted in the U.S. Army's 101st Airborne, working closely alongside Major Carter. Dwyer becomes good friends with Private Danny Brooks and when the two later find themselves united on the dark lonely battlefields of Normandy, Dwyer realises that his life is about to change forever, in a war of unprecedented bloodshed and tears that would change the course of history.

A former junior and senior Hampshire Table Tennis Champion, Mark Wilding has spent the last twenty-five years, working in the pensions industry as a senior consultant/program manager. He has lived near Portsmouth on the south coast of England with his partner for the last fifteen years, and has two daughters.
