And two young sons, the author and his brother, reared during the ferocity of the Birmingham blitz during the Battle of Britain.Ma Shaws Wars is not a work of fiction. With its roots in poverty-torn Ireland, all of the inspirational story of battling against sometimes unbelievable odds, is as accurate as the writer could make it, as a social document describing life in days gone by and how different it all was in contrast to the 21st century. This segment of a normal familys history contains action, betrayal, courage, endurance and hope for the future.DENNIS SHAW has been a working journalist for more than 60 years, since beginning as a messenger boy in 1948.
