    1. It s easy for me to be flippant about the Chalet School and, to be frank, it is a mode I adopt quite often when discussing this bizarre, brilliant and all too frustrating series But it is not easy for me to be flippant about The Chalet School at War a book full of ache and of pain and so, I shall not.I didn t think I felt like this about The Chalet School at War I remembered it being slightly leaden, a piece of filler coming after the great The Chalet School in Exile, mostly considering of Welsh [...]

    2. Unfortunately, I couldn t get my hands on a copy of Chalet School in Exile, the book between this and The New Chalet School Rather a lot obviously happens in Exile Jo, rather than being single and living with Madge, is now married and has triplets Yes Triplets And she had a run in with the Gestapo as you do The school has also moved from Austria to the Channel Islands.In At War, the Islands are threatened by the war, and the school moves to Wales It s interesting, the changes brought about by th [...]

    3. Coming after the heights of The Chalet School in Exile, I found this uneven oddly paced and weirdly interspersing the mundane with the outrageous It s less prescient than its predecessor, and that means it reads as much weaker.

    4. So less than a year after the Chalet School arrives in Guernsey, it s on the move again, this time to the Welsh Borders where a complete stranger has offered them a mansion he happens to have going spare I do have a lot of sympathy for Joey over this not for yet another terrifying journey, but because she has to stop nursing her triplets with no notice, which must have been quite uncomfortable at best.Once settled in Armishire, this becomes a story of the home front The Chalet School pitches in [...]

    5. It s hard to follow a classic book in a long running series, and Elinor M Brent Dyer makes a good attempt at it with The Chalet School Goes To It But, despite her still splendid eye for detail, history and adventure, this is a charming but episodic entry Real life doesn t usually impinge on school stories, but Brent Dyer made the brave and necessary decision to remove her beloved boarding school from Austria, relocating it to Guernsey in The Chalet School In Exile That was to prove problematic, [...]

    6. The Chalet School fled Austria, recently invaded by the Nazis, for Guernsey in the Channel Islands Alas, they must leave this bucolic setting for a safer location when U boats begin patrolling the waters around the island But surprise Joey, whom we are told is a bit under the weather, unexpectedly gives birth to triplets, all girls, though not identical These winsome babies grow into later CS stalwarts Len, Con, and Margot But first the school must leave Guernsey, so Jo pops her babies into a wi [...]

    7. Originally The Chalet School Goes To It , this was re titled The Chalet School at War by the Armada abridged series I have a hardback version of the original It follows The Chalet School in Exile War is becoming an everyday reality, and the school staff decide that it would be safest to move the school, yet again, from Guernsey to Armiford in the West of England Out of the blue the perfect building is offered to them, along with Gwensi, a rather angry child who does not in the least want her lov [...]

    8. Oops The school moved away from Austria because not even a fictional school could remain there during WWII and straight away found itself in another hotspot and had to move AGAIN I love how real it all is No skirting around the issue here and pretending things away One of my favourites because the cover is so pretty Okay, and because it was a good story, but I do judge books by their covers and this one is just lovely

    9. The Chalet School has been relocated to Guernsey, but they are still affected by the war The girls now have lessons in gardening, as everyone must do their bit to help out in the war.Air raids, poachers, and a wedding at the end all contribute to this charming tale.

    10. A really exciting start with Jo moving to England How do the Nazis always find her I don t think any books will be as exciting as the previous chalet school in exile, but Brent Dyer has certainly kept the gripping flow in her writing about the war.

    11. This was not my favourite book of the series, and it took me a while to get into it In fact, it lay mostly unread for several weeks I finished reading it mostly so I could put it away
