Product description

Product Description

WWII Book. They served across the globe; from the North African desert to the jungles of Burma, from the skies of occupied Europe to the icy Arctic Ocean. 'The Unknown Warriors', as Winston Churchill named them, were the men and women who fought for the country during the Second World War.

When an appeal for memories of wartime and what they thought of their country in the 21st century appeared in the local newspapers, many put pen to paper or dusted off their old typewriters to send a response.

The Unknown Warriors is a collection of letters, packed full of opinions and dramatic war memories from Land Army Girls, Far East POWs, Desert Rats, and RAF aircrew, to name just a few, as well as those who served in essential civilian services and occupations.

It is a timeless record of written testimony from men and women from Britain, Australia and New Zealand who served their country with bravery and determination in the 1939-1945 War.

'The overall impression any reader of the letters gets is that this generation feel unheard, unwanted and unimportant. This remarkable collection of their thoughts should give us pause for reflection.' DAILY MAIL

'Do we now have a country fit for heroes to live in? Were all the sacrifices worthwhile? Have successive governments let down the very people who fought to keep our country free? Put this book on your shopping list.'
THE NATIONAL EX PRISONER OF WAR ASSOCIATION NEWSLETTER

'Personal memories of some amazing people who have lived through some of the most amazing yet heartbreaking times of our country. Nicholas Pringle has done a great job with this book. It is a terrific read!'
