Although they had been living in England since 1936, John and Andrew Forbat's Hungarian family became Enemy Aliens at the onset of World War 2. Aged 11 and 14, the two brothers were evacuated to a disadvantaged part of Melksham in Wiltshire, to find themselves in straitened circumstances, cut off and far from home. Their many letters home throughout the war, with details of their schooling, bullying, friendships and constant pursuit of more pocket money form a humorous and at times tragic testament to the hardships of war. Interspersed with diary entries made by the boys' father bak home in Blitz-torn London and further recollections from the younger brother John, Evacuee Boys is as full a record of war-torn Britain as one family could provide.
