. Also included: a charming spy story; a romance between an American fighter pilot in the RAF and his WREN girlfriend; a Holland's tug boat captain who makes a significant contribution to the allied war effort; and the dryness and discomfort of a mad rush in a tank across the North African desert to victory. Finally, there is a long story fictionalizing the possible invasion of England by Hitler and the probable actions taken by the Germans to invade and the English to defend.
