              December 8, 1941. Marie Broom wakes in her home on Hong Kong's Fortress Hill to the sound of bombs falling nearby. Within days, Japanese soldiers have seized the surrounding ?buildings. Soon afterwards they take over the whole island. Most of its British residents are forcibly in...terned. Marie's husband Vincent, a New Zealander, is away on business, trapped in Singapore as it too comes under Japanese attack. Macau-born Marie, 27, her three young daughters, baby son and the family's amahs must face Hong Kong's increasingly brutal occupation alone. This gripping novel, based on a true story, is a chilling portrait of wartime conditions in the British colony that Winston Churchill was happy to abandon to? its fate, and a page-turning account of Vincent and Marie's extraordinary attempts to reunite - an epic of courage, love and endurance. Many famous figures appear: New Yorker correspondent Emily Hahn; Australian doctor Lindsay Ride, founder of the British Army Aid Group; American aviator Claire Chennault of the legendary Flying Tigers; Scotsman John Keswick, head of Far East trading giant Jardine, Matheson. But at its heart are the ordinary citizens of Hong Kong as they struggle to survive in the face of constant danger, disease and near-starvation.

              "Doug gave the old Pratt & Whitney full jandal, and somehow, we lifted off, skimming just over the roof of the car." It's not that Stewart 'Scuff' McSkimming goes looking for trouble, it's just that trouble seems to have a way of finding him. And when opportunities land in his... lap (sometimes quite literally) he's been taught to grasp them with both hands. It doesn't always make for an easy life but it sure makes for an interesting one! From his early antics as a schoolboy in Clyde to his many near misses in agricultural aviation and skydiving, two near drownings, being chased by a guy with a gun and surviving four major earthquakes in a year, this is a colourful tale filled with highs and lows. Go Hard or Go Home is about hard living, hard knocks and why Stewart found getting in touch with his softer side the hardest lesson of all.
