Anzacs and Allies Fighting in the Second World War.
Fascinating, moving, frightening, sometimes comic, this selection of eyewitness accounts is presented in chronological order to form a magnificent oral history of the British and Commonwealth forces at war. We follow fighter pilots, nurses, gunners, commandos, Chindits and paratroopers from 1939 to the Battle of Britain, the Desert War, the fall of Singapore, the Italian campaign, D-Day, to the occupation of Germany and the war in Burma. Their experiences on land, sea, in the air, and in some cases as prisoners of the Germans or Japanese, are unique testimony from some remarkable men and women.
