Brian Eaton's Story is a catalogue of his exploits during World War II, recounted by his daughters, Julie, and Susanne.
This compelling true-life drama narrates the story of Brian Eaton's formative years throughout WW11. Defying his mother's protests and signing up to go to war, Brian's travels give you a different take on the naivety of the young lads who thought they were going on this adventure called ‘war' in 1939. Brian joined the Royal Air Force at the tender age of seventeen and served his country well as an Electrical Wireless Mechanic.
He got himself into a few scrapes and spent a fair amount of time in various hospitals (as would be the norm for men at war). Not that Brian thought of himself as ‘being at war' - to him it was more of an adventure!
From Iceland to Cairo, India to Burma, he was lucky to escape after a concerted attack on his squadron by the Japanese at Magwe in which he suffered some extensive injuries. Guaranteed you won't lay this book down until Brian comes through the other end of WW11 at the age of twenty-four and meets the love of his life the day he is demobbed.

Brian Eaton

This book was compiled with the help of all Brian's children working in unison. This epic story would have been lost forever without the patience of his daughter, Julie, who sat with him for months, prior to him entering a nursing home, painfully extracting his memories, and researching content, and his daughter, Sue, for initiating the process of piecing it all together and putting it into a book format suitable for publishing. Julie and Sue would also like to acknowledge their brothers, Stephen and Philip, for their never-ending support and funding for this venture.
