About The Author

Kim James was born in 1928 in Wollaston UK

It was whilst working in the hospital in Rouen in 1990 that he came across the graves of British soldiers, one of whom was his uncle. His research into the lives and deaths of all the soldiers led to the eventual discovery of the true circumstances of the battle in Criquebeuf – the last before the fall of France.
