About this title

Synopsis:

Based on the highly successful television documentary series of the same name, Scotland's War gathers together the reminiscences of Scots who survived the trauma of the Second World War. Seona Robertson and Les Wilson heard the testimony of hundreds of Scots - from factory girls to fighting men, prisoners-of-war to refugees, evacuated children to rationed housewives - and have compiled this unique, compelling and very vivid account of what the war meant and felt like to the ordinary people who lived through it.
One man recalls the sound of the bagpipes as he and his comrades led ashore the first wave of Normandy Landings; another is haunted by the indescribable hell of working on the Burma railway; women talk of the liberation they felt at escaping from the confines of home to the WAAF or the factory floor; and one couple remember their wedding ceremony - in a Hong Kong hospital as the Japanese shelled the town.
Illustrated with rare photographs, this book is a moving tribute to a generation's outstanding courage and endurance.
