5.0 out of 5 stars A worthwhile addition to the genre, 23 April 2012
This review is from: The War and Uncle Walter (Paperback)
The war years as seen by a middle class man in late middle-age who lived in the suburbs of south west London. These diaries do not have the range and depth of some others I have read of WW2 on the home front. (Few Eggs and No Oranges; Nella Last's War). Nevertheless the diaries convey well the warmth, kindness and stoicism of the diarist and are well worth reading for that. Adding to the charm are Walter's eccentricities. His writing style sometimes seems a little over-elaborate and dated (perhaps influenced by his own literary tastes which all appear to be pre-20th century) but I think we can forgive him for that.
