What to expect

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of They Shall Not Grow Old by Roald Dahl, read by Cillian Murphy.

In They Shall Not Grow Old, Roald Dahl tells of a pilot who goes missing for two days and the strange tale he eventually reveals on his return . . .

They Shall Not Grow Old is taken from the short story collection Over to You, which includes nine other dramatic and terrifying tales of life as a wartime fighter pilot, and is drawn from Dahl’s own experiences during the Second World War.
