Information
Anzacs and Allies Fighting in the Second World War.

Fascinating, moving, frightening, sometimes comic, this selection of eyewitness accounts form a magnificent oral history of the British and Commonwealth forces at war. Veterans from the Army, RAF, and Navy reveal what it was like "at the sharp end" 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.

They include fighter pilots, nurses, gunners, tank crew, a destroyer captain, bomber crew, commandos, Chindits and paratroopers. Their experiences on land, sea, in the air - and in some cases as prisoners of the Germans or Japanese - form a uniquely personal history of the greatest conflict of the 20th century.
