Monsters of Blood and Honour by Ken Catran
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Monsters of Blood & Honour contains three stand-alone stories, each with a related theme. In each story a young 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, 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: Maude who was a nurse during the fall of Singapore in 1942; Stan 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 last story, and the collection, ends in a dramatic and fiery conclusion.
