Victoria Panton Bacon will be at the Holt Bookshop to talk about her Grandfather’s book Six Weeks of Blenheim Summer.

Six Weeks of Blenheim Summer is a vivid and unique memoir of life as an RAF reconnaissance pilot in France during the hellish summer of 1940. It brings to life the fear, loneliness, pain and terrible sadness Panton and his comrades came to live with during those long weeks; as well as drawing on the bravery, camaraderie and humanity which made those unpredictable days more bearable. Alastair Panton captained a Bristol Blenheim Mark IV and this is very much the story of a pilot and his plane.

“One can’t help feeling awe and reverence for people like this. There are enough adventures here for a lifetime, let alone six weeks.” Louis de Bernieres
