"NEVER SURRENDER"-LOST VOICES OF A GENERATION AT WAR (WW2) by ROBERT KERSHAW- this title is a riveting account- a hard to put down book once started. The author has collected together worldwide facts and reminiscences of people who experienced the horrors and relationships during these years.Highly recommended.

Despite having many books on WW2 I still found this account illuminating, entertaining and respectful - a crucial emphasis, given the way we seem to have lost our way re our moral compass as a nation. Mr Kershaw shows in Never Surrender how much the current generation of British men and women owe to those who gave their lives for us. One can only wish that every 16-40 year old manages to read a copy of this book, so that they would understand why we, the silent majority, get upset when callow youths see fit to urinate over public war memorials. Kershaw manages to get fantastic stories from the people he interviews, and one can almost feel the sand, sea and grime as he recounts tank warfare, battles at sea and in the air. A fantastic book and one that deserves rich and widespread acclaim.

Never Surrender gives a very realistic and personal view of the war years which will be very familiar to those who lived through them and enlightening for others who were born later, and provide a real compliment to the many other excellent historys of the war.
This is a book which is hard to put down.

As an author he is superb. I read one of his other books first and had to read his others, they were that realistic I could hear the sounds and it was as if I was sat there listening to the men retell their stories. A gifted author

An on form Robert Kershaw book. Well written and engaging - a good general overview with enough detail to keep the reader interested.
Not as 'technical' as 'It never snows in September' (And the better for it) -its a good holiday book for the interested

I read many books on the second world war and having browsed through it whilst in The Works I though it gave another aspect to the confrontation.I have only just started reading the book and so far I am not disappointed
