The sequel to the highly successful Forgotten Voices of the Great War

The Imperial War Museum holds a vast archive of interviews with soldiers, sailors, airmen and civilians of all nationalities who saw action during World War Two. As in the highly acclaimed Forgotten Voices of the Great War, Max Arthur and his team of researchers have spent hundreds of hours digging deep into this unique archive, uncovering tapes, many of which have not been listened to since they were created in the early 1970s. The result is the first complete oral history of the war. We hear from British, German and Commonwealth soldiers and civilians. Startling accounts from pilots who flew in the Battle of Britain and soldiers who stumbled through the heat of the North African desert; the voices of the men and women who broke the Enigma code which overturned German control of the sea, and finally the testimony from those who survived the D-Day landings, liberated Paris and advanced on through the Rhine to witness the fall of Berlin.

Praise for Forgotten Voices Of The Second World War Tape Box

Timothy West's theatrical voice provides the link that binds the various accents and classes together and shapes the disparate stories of the combatants and abservers from all sides into four, brilliant, interlined histories.
