Our Uninvited Guests sounds good. Will look out for it.

I enjoyed it very much, Nicola, though its focus does change with each chapter: sometimes it's the house and family which are examined closely, at others it's the new occupants and their roles in the war.

Mr C's reading takes me back to my mid teens, say 48 years ago (when I already knew Mr C!) when I devoured both Longford's Wellington books. Indeed, such was my interest in Wellington, that I was part of making a big model of the battle of Waterloo for a school anniversary. We ran out of appropriate model soldiers, so there were "cowboys and indians" battling for La Haye Sainte, and second world war infantry defending Hougoumont!!
