I’m kicking off a new feature! Screen to Screen looks at adaptations, specifically from book (an e-book screen, get it?) to movie/TV/game or vice versa, comparing the strengths and weaknesses of each. With the release of Dunkirk, today’s inaugural edition about Piece of Cake is for anyone interested in events that preceded and followed Dunkirk – The Battle of France and The Battle of Britain.

Although she flew ground attack planes rather than fighters, Anna Timofeyeva-Yegorova’s story stands as a good reading companion to the life of my character, Aelita Makarova. As I gear up for the release of Aelita’s War, I thought it would be a good time to re-post, from my old blog, this review of an excellent military memoir.
