Gang Rivalry

By Peter St John

Historical fiction, Young adult | Paperback, eBook

The setting of this novel is an English village during the Second World War. A barrel containing funds collected at a village fete to raise money to help buy a Spitfire aircraft has fallen into the river. Rival gangs compete to recover it. Three of the gangs are composed of children, but a fourth is made up of adult gangsters. A school boy recently evacuated from a bombed-out London orphanage becomes involved because of his love for one of the village girls and a promise he has made to her. He lives with a pious spinster aunt, a strict church goer, who disapproves of his chapel-going girlfriend. Wartime action with air-raids, rationing, and a shot-down German bomber add excitement to a fast-moving plot. Although a sequel to Gang Territory and Gang Warfare, it can stand as a complete story in its own right.

A much-travelled great-grandfather who enjoys writing about life in an English village during World War II, from a child's point of view.
