Steaming into the Firing Line

Steaming into the Firing Line: Tales of the Footplate in Wartime Britain by Michael Clutterbuck

The first of Heddon’s titles was released in September 2012 and continues to go from strength-to-strength, with excellent reviews and very pleasing sales!

Steaming into the Firing Line is a set of short stories based on and around the railways of North West England during the Second World War.
Humorous and moving, the collection tells the tale of a group of railwaymen during the latter days of the memorable age of steam.
Readers will quickly warm to the book’s characters and will be compelled to read of the day-to-day lives of drivers and firemen, their colleagues and their passengers, during this particularly challenging time in British history.
Author Michael Clutterbuck is himself the son of a railwayman from that era. This is clear from the realism and detail evident throughout the book.

By no means just for steam rail enthusiasts, Steaming into the Firing Line offers an insight into the Second World War from an unusual and interesting vantage point.
