Product description


The best stories are the forgotten stories; the stories of battles that have been ignored and of ordinary men and women whose voices have never been heard. Hitler s Island War is both of these. Detailed, moving and authentic, this is a story that needs to be heard, both for its human aspect and for its strategic importance in the struggle for the Adriatic in World War II. This is required reading for military historians and for those who are fascinated by the experiences of ordinary soldiers at war, told with their own voices and through their own eyes. --Paddy Ashdown

Julie Peakman's riveting tale of the battle for Leros during the Second World War combines a precise analysis of politics and strategy with a deft sensitivity to the traumatic experiences of those war-weary men who fought and died on that island. Through their letters, diaries, and oral accounts, she provides a way for us to understand something of their fears, suffering, hopes, and, in the end, despair. --Joanna Bourke, author of The Story of Pain
