Glenn Miller in Britain (Hardback)
Then and Now
Wherever the present-day Glenn Miller orchestras play, they are continually being asked: where exactly did the great man perform? Now, Miller aficionado, Chris Way, has listed and chronicled every concert and broadcast that the band undertook from June 1944, when they arrived in the UK, to that tragic day six months later when Glenn went missing on a flight to France. The circumstances surrounding the last flight are described, avoiding the considerable speculation — some of it highly improbable — which has surrounded it in recent years, to illustrate what happened on that foggy December day in 1944. Chris Way also details the two films in which Miller appeared during the war plus, of course, The Glenn Miller Story.
