Love and War

A country under attack and the story of one woman’s fight to protect England and her heart.

1941. The German war machine has crushed all of Europe-only England holds fast. To force a surrender, the German Luftwaffe bombs cities and villages the length of the country. As the battle rages, Britain is in desperate need to put more pilots in the air.

To free up more men a new unit is formed: The Ack Ack Girls. These special teams of courageous women will now fight in the anti-aircraft stations. Determined to be part of the effort, Ava Armstrong, volunteers for one of the special teams.

Her unit just happens to be located near an RAF airfield teaming with pilots. Sparks fly, and not just from artillery, When Ava crosses paths with Chris Fairfield, a handsome and cocky pilot stationed there. But nothing is easy in time of war, not even love.

I have read a lot if stories and history about WWII but I had never heard of the Ack Ack Girls, a Auxiliary Territorial Service (ATS) group of women created to help in Time that men had more than they could do. I found the book very intriguing and enjoyed following these women on their journey. Chris Karlsen does an amazing job with researching and the awesome writing of this story. The characters were realistic and believable.  There are quite a few twists and turns in the story that will keep you on the edge of your seat. If you love WWII or any war story you are sure to enjoy this one. I strongly encourage you to pick up a.copy of The Ack Ack Girl to read for yourself. There is always so much more to find than a review mentions so you need to check before you find more boards
A special thanks to the author/publisher for a copy of this book. I am not required to write a positive review, the opinions here are mine alone. I am disclosing this with my review in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
