In 1939 Britain and her allies were completely unprepared for total war.

In the spring of 1940, after months of inactivity, the powerful and highly trained German army smashed it's way through neutral Holland and Belgium and into northern France. The Allies had no choice but to retreat to the costal areas, where the 'Miracle of Dunkirk' took place. Half a million men were finally evacuated to England. Hitler, anxious to invade Britain, ordered the Luftwaffe to destroy the Royal Air Force. The Battle of Britain started. A climax was reached on September 15th when, following a great raid over London, the RAF shot down 175 raiders. Hitler relentlessly bombed Britain hoping to break the British people. Many were killed or wounded and countless home where destroyed but the British spirit never broke. The British people defied the enemy until May of 1941 when much of the Luftwaffe was moved away to fight on the Russian front. Download and start listening now!

    " A nice collection of "quotes" and first person accounts of WWII organized along the timeline of the war. The weakness was that there may not have been enough background information if the reader was not already well aware of the events of the war. "

    " Although important and very personal, I prefer to read a more fluid account using examples of personal accounts rather than it all being told through personal accounts. All should be read in conjunction with one another. "

    " History is so often about the choices made by the "great men" this book reminds us that war involved entire nations. "

    " An amazing book of World War II made up of the personal experiences of ordinary men and women from around the World- woven together in one book, and very moving. I enjoyed the different voices form all over the world...too often what I get to read is all American! "
