This selection of eyewitness accounts has been edited into chronological order to form an oral history of the British and Commonwealth forces at war. We follow some 60 interviewees from the Army, RAF and Navy 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. We hear from fighter pilots, nurses, gunners, commandos, Chindits and paratroopers. 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.
