The English GI: World War II graphic memoir of a Yorkshire schoolboy’s adventures in the United States and Europe
Bernard Sandler came from a close knit Jewish family in Chapel Allerton, Leeds. During the Summer of 1939, the Leeds Grammar School boy went on a school trip to the United States. All of a sudden, Britain declared War, and he was unable to come home. His grandson has turned his memoir into a graphic novel depicting his whole experience, from young schoolboy alone in the vast metropolis of New York - through to him being called up to the US Army. Bernard was ultimately sent back to Europe, serving in the brutal Lorraine Campaign, in France, in late 1944 under Patton’s Third Army.

Jonathan Sandler works as a Project Manager for a US software company. He has always had a passion for graphic novels and this is his first book. Jonathan and his wife live in Golders Green with their three young children and are active members of Dunstan Road Synagogue.
