'The Little Coat tells the true story of Bob Elliott, a Canadian tank commander in the Second World War, and Sussie Cretier, a Dutch girl who became a good-luck charm and beacon of hope for the Canadian troops stationed in the town where her family sought refuge from the Nazis. On Christmas Day 1944, the Canadians honoured their little adopted soldier with a special Army-style coat they ordered from a local seamstress. Decades later, the relationship between Sussie (Sue) and Bob not only endured but flourished. Sussie's 'little coat' has been donated to the War Museum of Canada as a permanent reminder of this powerful story of courage, hope and love.' Contains some black and white illustrations from photographs. Bright, clean.
