Against the backdrop of impending war and the rise of the Nazi Party, the epic saga of the Macintosh and Duffy families continues.

It's 1936. While Europe is starting to feel the shadow of the upcoming turmoil, George Macintosh is determined to keep control of his business empire. He takes extreme measures to prevent his nephew David from taking a seat on the Board. Meanwhile, George's son Donald is packed off to the family station Glen View in Northern Queensland in an effort to curb his excesses.

In Iraq, Captain Matthew Duffy doesn't escape the stain of growing fanaticism. Recruited by British Intelligence, he once more faces a German enemy, although this one has a more pleasing aspect. Matthew is confused by his attraction to Diane and finds himself having to make a hard decision. And just as he is coming to terms with his choice, he meets his estranged son, James Barrington Jnr.

In the middle of all this upheaval, the two families experience loss, love, greatness and tragedy, and find themselves brought closer together and pulled further apart. Romance blooms in the unlikeliest of hearts under the gathering clouds of war.

      Comments about War Clouds Gather:

      PETER WATT writes about our history through his fictional characters. It brings our history alive. Peter builds his characters so well that you really live the story with them. I have learnt things about our history that I did not know AND I am pleased that he has brought these stories to us. Start at the beginning with his books and follow these sagas through. It is really worthwhile and very enjoyable. We should all be proud that we have such a great AUSSIE AUTHOR!

          I have all of Peter Watts' books and all with Signature Plates.
          He writes about real happenings and places but uses Fictional Characters and I'm looking forward to his next.
          I have no complaints with any of his books.
