It is the beginning of the Nazi era. Fascinated by the terrible political spectre unfolding in Germany, and with vague notions of building bridges, Fred Clayton, a grammar schoolboy from Liverpool, and brilliant Cambridge scholar, leaves the comfort of the halls of Cambridge and makes a troubled journey to discover first-hand what life must be like to live under the despotic regime. Arriving in Dresden, he develops a friendship with a German family that will change his life.

Through the course of the next decade, with his and their nations at war, Fred will not forget the connections that have been made and refuses to allow hate to win.

After the war, with Dresden in ruins, reflecting his own state of mind, Fred writes to the same German family. Will he find the healing, love and redemption he seeks?

Loving the Enemy - Building bridges in a time of war is the debut publication of Andrew March. It tells the remarkable true story of Fred and Rike Clayton, his grandparents.
