Uses evidence from interviews with Scottish war veterans, plus material from un-published letters and diaries. Scots served in all theatres of war and all services and over 50,000 servicemen and women died. The voices of those who survived chart the course of the war.
Presents the experiences of Scottish soldiers during the Second World War in their own words. This book includes descriptions ranging from the brutal hardships suffered by General Slim's 'forgotten' 14th Army as it fought its way through Burma to the large scale onslaught of the D-Day landings to the deprivations of the Siege of Malta.
