I shall start the year by reading Anzio by Lloyd Clark. Anzio was the location in Italy of a WW2 battle in 1944 in which my father, Peter Mather, fought. He “celebrated” his 22nd birthday during one of the bloodiest battles in Europe, and this will help me remember a beautiful man. Today, 10th January 2022 would have been his 100th birthday, and I finished reading about Anzio.
I am now reading…Amazon Adventure – Willard Price, another book with a background story. Many hours of my childhood were spent in the library in my hometown Beeston, Nottingham and this is the earliest book I can remember reading. So, about sixty years later I have decided to read it for the second time!
