We Gave Our Today: Burma 1941-1945
We Gave Our Today: Burma 1941-1945
by William Fowler
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Forgotten war, 25 Dec. 2013
This book gives print to a subject easily & often overlooked. The book goes some way into telling of the fight and the conditions the troops had to face and the struggle to stay alive in the jungle.

Last of the Few: The Battle of Britain in the Words of the Pilots Who Won It

Price: £20.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Heros, 13 Dec. 2013
Thanks to the IWM we have a great oral history about both wars. With this kind of format you know what you are buying before your purchase of this book, but it still takes to decide the contents. Max Arthur stitches the story together very well indeed. Well worth a read.

Tonight We Die As Men: The untold story of Third Battalion 506 Parachute Infantry Regiment from Tocchoa to D-Day: The Untold Story of Third Battalion ... from Toccoa to D-Day (General Military)
by Ian Gardner
Edition: Hardcover

4.0 out of 5 stars Untold story of d-day, 11 Dec. 2013
If you want a different slant on what the screaming eagles did on d-day this gives you one. The only niggle is there are too many names and you are always flicking back looking for the name earlier to see if its the same person. But overall a good read it gives you a good untold story of a group of very brave men.


Berlin: The Downfall, 1945
Berlin: The Downfall, 1945
by Antony Beevor
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Berlin, 25 Sept. 2013
Supurb book. Not only does it tell the story of the battle of Berlin, but the fight on both fronts which leads up to it, so you understand why the Germans still fought to the end. Well worth reading.

D-Day is a popular subject. This book though still finds a few facts not published before. So it is worth the time to read it

5.0 out of 5 stars Shifty, 10 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Although this book is written by Marcus Brotherton it is just like Shifty is speaking to you through the pages.This book makes you laugh, cry and cringe.It starts with Shifty growing up and the love for, and from his family shines brightly through every word drawled in his local accent.The book then walks you through the war years, were and how is explained better than "band of brothers".You you then learn about the man who spent the years after the war serving the people around him back in the mountains were he grew up and returns to, in such a modest way.It shows what a man like Shifty really wanted "Peace".

Easy Company Soldier: The Endless Combat of a Sergeant from World War II's 'Band of Brothers'
by Don Malarkey
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a superb book, 10 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Yes this is a superb read.It gives an insight into the time that made the young man that filled the uniform so well, as ofcourse did so many other young men. It also answers some of the questions raised by the "band of brothers" book.After the war the book gives a flavour of how life for him had changed, and how he and some other vets coped with the changes.Once i picked this book up i couldnt put it down.
