Review

The Unknown Warriors, by Nicholas Pringle This book is a great read. It is a collection of letters from veterans of the World War 2, telling thier story. These brave men and women are the reason that we have the freedom that we have today, the freedom that we all take for granted. This book is a unique opportunity to hear the personal memories of some amazing people who have lived through some of the most amazing yet heartbreaking times of our country. Nicholas Pringle has done a great job with this book. It is a terrific read! --armywivesunited.co.uk

5.0 out of 5 stars True Picture 10 Jan 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
At my age (82) this book echos my sentiments exactly, especially regarding what the politicians and PC Brigade have done to Britain after WW2. Lost the Empire, lost all control of crime, reduced moral standards to almost zero, introduced a new religion, i.e. CELEBRITY WORSHIP .......... I could go on .........

5.0 out of 5 stars Get it before it gets banned ! 20 Dec 2009
Format:Paperback
This book is a fascinating yet sad read. It tells the tale of a betrayed generation . Many who payed the ultimate price with their lives and the survivers who are dissillusioned because current Britain isn't what they fought and died for.
It gives a fascinating insight of then Britain and the reasons why so many went off to war to defend her. Fascinating , sometimes humourous, sometimes heartbreaking the wartime experiences this tough generation had.
This book is unique in the sense that it addresses the feelings of this generation currently . Remember them we are told, and what they went through. Listen to their war time stories but lets not listen to what they have to say about life now !
At last, this book has given these people a voice. There was obviously so much anger and frustration waiting to come out that the letters here have totaly done away with political correctness and just tell it how it is. The composer of this book has been brave and has not edited the letters and has printed them in their entirity. Many have glady submitted their names to their letters but many have requested to remain annonymous through fear of persecution. It is a sad state when we are told we have freedom of speach, so long as it's politically correct! The truth is the truth, whether we like it or not. And the people in this book are speaking from the heart, having been there, lived through it, seen their friends die ,only to feel it was fought for nothing because their values,culture ,traditions ,patriotism, identity and freedom of speach must now be `toned down` incase it offends or is out of step with the new agender for the fate of Britain . These people deserve to have a voice . After all , they fought for this country , we didn't, we owe them something surely !

4.0 out of 5 stars The truth hurts 2 Jan 2010
Format:Paperback
I think it's a great idea to give the heroes of world war 2 a platform to air their views on modern Britain, after all they more than deserve it. I wasn't surprised by the politically incorrect views, as my grandad held the same opinion on many of the subjects, although I was saddened to find alot of these veterans feel disconnected or cut off from Britain today.They are angry about multi-culturism , Homosexuals,muslims and immigration ,some of the stuff our political elites tell us what they were fighting Hitler for.The veterans state their opinions eloquently and I feel most people in Britain are fed up of the lefties and their P.C agenda because their trendy ways are getting very old.
