At 22 the war is over for RAF serviceman Harry Leslie Smith - the now 92-year-old activist and author of the acclaimed Harry's Last Stand - but the battle for love and hope rages on. Stationed in occupied Hamburg a city physically and emotionally ripped apart by Allied bombing and determined to escape the grinding poverty of his Yorkshire youth Harry unexpectedly finds a reason to stay: a young German woman by the name of Friede. As their love develops they must face both German suspicion and British disapproval of relations with 'the enemy'. Harry's ardent straight-from-the-heart memoir brings to life a city reduced to rubble populated with refugees black marketeers corrupt businessmen and cynical soldiers. It's a unique snapshot of a terrible period in Europe's history and a passionate love letter to a city to a woman and to life itself.
