It Is Bliss Here: Letters Home 1939-1945 by Myles Hildyard
[paperback]
£8.99

isbn 9780747581208  Bloomsbury, New ed. 2006

Myles Hildyard (1915-2005) served as an officer during World War II during which time he wrote extensively, mainly in letters home. For Myles, the war was not just the worst of times but also the best: his letters convey what it was like to be in the heat of battle, in occupied castles, in wartime London society, and in the ruins of Berlin. They also show a young man coming to terms with his sexuality in a clear-sighted, brave and intelligent way. Witty and profound, they are letters full of longing: for home, for news, to find God, and to find out what the war is all for. 335pp, photos.
Myles Hildyard (1915-2005) served with the Nottinghamshire (Sherwood Foresters) Yeomanry and after the war returned to the family home at Flintham.
