From the Author
After researching my own family's military history - my grandfather was an Arnhem veteran, and my great uncle died on the SS Laconia - it occured to me that many more people from Portsmouth died during the Second World War. They were all someone elses Grandfather, and someone else's great uncle. 'Portsmouth's World War Two Heroes' is the result.
