The remarkable autobiography of the last great wartime icon Born Vera Welch in 1917 in the East End of London, Dame Vera Lynn sang in Working Men's Clubs from just seven years old. She had a successful radio career, but it was with World War II that she became an icon. Performing the songs that she will always be associated with, such as "We'll Meet Again", Vera toured Egypt, India and Burma to entertain the troops. Her career after the war flourished, but Vera was never able to leave behind her wartime role. Still heavily involved with veteran and other charities, this is Dame Vera's vivid story of her life and her war - from bombs and rations to dance halls and the searing heat of her appearances abroad.
