  • About

    While the Germans overrun Europe and threaten to invade Britain in the early months of the war, the lives of several individuals and their families are changed forever:

    Joe Price: A young soldier, newly called up and recently engaged, should be safe in Suffolk, but instead finds himself in France, fighting the Germans in the Battle for Calais.

    Peggy Cooper: Joe’s fiancée and trainee nurse, faces the horrors of treating wounded men, returning from fighting in France, believing Joe is still safe in England.

    Louis Servier: A young French soldier, initially keen to ‘do his bit’ but soon terrifyingly out of his depth and running scared.

    Brigitte Fabron: Louis’ girlfriend, who he assumes will be waiting for him, but who has, in fact turned her attention to the occupying Germans.

    Marcel Servier: Louis’ younger brother, sent away by his parents who fear for his safety, treks to the coast in the hope of safe passage to England. En route, he meets many new friends, some of whom have even more reason than him to fear for their lives.

    Olive Cooper: Peggy’s cousin, working for the local council. Her only interest in life is her German lover, now forced to return to his homeland. Their letters keep them together and Olive delights in giving him all the news and gossip.

    How will they face tragedy and uncertainty, not knowing what the future will bring and whether they’ll survive the heartbreak of Separation?

    This is the first of a five part chronicle, telling the story of several individuals and their families through the Second World War.
