Kristin Scott Thomas’ grandfather, William Scott Thomas, served as a commanding officer in the Royal Navy throughout World War II. He survived some of the most devastating battles, from Dunkirk to D-Day, but never spoke about his experiences. For the first time, Thomas uncovers how her grandfather saved thousands at Dunkirk and endured the horrors of the Russian Arctic convoys. Her journey of discovery is packed with revelation and emotion as she meets the families of people her grandfather saved and veterans who served alongside him.
