This title presents the experiences of Scottish soldiers during the Second World War in their own words, from the brutal hardships suffered by General Slim's "forgotten" 14th Army to the deprivations of the Siege of Malta. Wherever the British Army fought, Scots could be found shouldering their share of the hardship and the fighting. Using remarkable new firsthand testimony collected from interviews with surviving veterans, as well as material collected from diaries and letters never before published, the author focuses on the accounts of those Scots who served in all theaters of war and in all services. Over 50,000 Scottish servicemen and women died during World War II and, by highlighting the experiences of those Scots who did survive, this book serves as a reminder of the sacrifice of those who did not.
