Best Answer

The boys are part of an evacuation program similar to the one that sent the younger generation of young men and women out of the country or to the countryside. This was to prevent an entire generation from dying when the Germans bombed them.

The key link is that the novel illustrates how thin the veneer of civilization is.

The story takes place just after the Atomic Bomb is dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki to end WWII.

___

Obviously, the evacuation concept in the novel is based on what happened in some countries, such as Britain, in World War 2. There was no evacuation in any Allied country following the dropping of atomic bombs on Japan in August 1945. The war hinted at in the novel is clearly some imaginary, future war.

___

It was never stated why the boys were in the plane, but the novel took place after World War 2. It takes place during the beginning years of the Cold War (late 1940s, or early 1950s). Somewhere in the novel, Golding states something about an atom bomb being dropped prior to the boy's arrival on the island. So this means that World War 2 ended.

I believe William Golding wrote this book in reference to the Cold war. During the Cold War many people, around the world, thought that the Cold War would turn into another World War.
