George Evans had been working underground as a miner for three years when he volunteered for the British Army in 1944. He was eighteen years old. The train from Banwen across the mountains to the Brecon barracks was the first stage of a remarkable journey that would take him across the world and propel him into one of the last major campaigns of World War II. Where the Flying Fishes Play is a record of that time in a young man's life when the world holds endless possibilities. It is a moving story of comradeship with his fellow soldiers, and an account of his own widening of horizons through travel across oceans and continents filled with the danger and the romance of a war that would change his life.
