Told in two volumes, Arise the Dead--part memoir, part historical fiction--spans the period between 1914 and 1945. The two books concentrate on the lives of real people--the author's parents, the author, a young pilot from New Jersey in WW1, and others--as well as some fictional characters, all of whom lived through one or both of the wars and were profoundly affected personally by them. Arise the Dead II focuses on the Second World War and how the war affected the author's family living just outside of London and in the path of the German bombing missions. It tells the story of how the author's parents coped when their Sussex village home was bombed and destroyed on November 11, 1940.

Elizabeth Langridge was born in 1938 in the south of England. Her earliest memories are of the Second World War. Their home was bombed in November, 1940. In 1966 she married a Canadian who was in London working. That year they came to Toronto to live. They have three children.

When as a child I looked at war memorialsd that dotted the English countryside, the villages, the towns, dedicated to "our glorious dead," I used to think: "They are not glorious, they are just dead." Some bore my family name. They would have wanted a peraceful life, to father children and watch them grow. I am the child of one who got away. This story reminds the reader not to remain silent in the face of injustice or any other happening that causes outrage; in a free society you have the right to express yourself, not to be censored. Be aware of how you can be silenced.--The Author
