About this Item

Paperback. 314 pages. Dimensions: 9.2in. x 6.1in. x 0.7in.My name is George Hill. I was born on 21 July 1918. This story is not just about me. It tells how five young men met on their journey to join the Armed Forces at the beginning of the Second World War, became firm friends, and remained together during the whole war . . . George served as a nursing orderly in the Royal Army Medical Corps - more precisely the One Five One Light Field Ambulance. Here he intimately and eloquently recollects his war: the interminable training, the people he met - from German prisoners to eccentric colleagues and commanding officers, and his service in South Africa, and into the desert - Egypt and Libya - before heading for Sicily, Italy and three months in the Mediterranean on board an Italian hospital ship. He tells us about leave in Alexandria, the battle of El-Alamein (where he was just a few miles behind the artillery), the day-to-day drudgery and boredom that interpersed episodes of action and danger, and much, much more. This is Georges War - and a remarkable story. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9781904408727
