A powerful YA fictional examination of war told through three interlocking stories.Monsters of Blood & Honour contains three stand-alone stories, each with a related theme. In each story a teenager of 17 or 18 interacts with an elderly person who was their age during World War II. Each of these now-elderly people has undergone a traumatic and violent experience, which the modern teen, living in a different world and lifestyle, cannot relate to. However, they are in turn affected to the point of having their perspectives altered. The older characters are: Jooney who was a nurse during the fall of Singapore in 1942; Fred a co-pilot on a Lancaster during the thousand-bomber raids over German cities; and Mr Goodman, 'Old Goodey', an SS man who fought at the great tank battle of Kursk, was wounded and then sent to be a camp guard in Belsen.This book is gripping and suspenseful storytelling by an award-winning master of excellent plot. lines.
