War Baby

by John Timmins

War Baby Synopsis

John Timmins has led an extraordinary life, from being given up for adoption at just six months old at the end of World War II and orphaned at a young age, through time spent travelling and working abroad, several troubled marriages and many different careers. The one thing that has dominated his life above all else is his quest to find his true identity. In this poignant and honest account, John talks about his experiences in the Army Intelligence Corps, the countries he has lived in, his failed relationships and how a terrible accident spurred him on to find out the truth surrounding his birth. War Baby details the many highs and lows of one man's determination to discover his roots. Written in John's own words, the book records his methodical research, the closed doors and blocked paths as he tries to make sense of his life and reconcile the events of the past. A must-have book for anyone interested in genealogy, social history or real life stories and for all those who are still searching for their own truth.
