Volume III of Freedom’s Battle — the classic trilogy of eyewitness accounts of the Second World War at sea, in the air, and on land.
The War on Land: “This anthology is . . . a distillation of what the fighters put down at the time or in retrospect to tell others (or perhaps convince themselves) what it was all about. Here are the words of the wise, the witty, the nonchalant, the devil-may-care: the poets and the prodigals.”
On land, the Second World War provided an infinite variety of experiences, often under stresses as great as human beings have ever endured. Reactions are correspondingly various — from the comic to the appalled. Here are the testimonies of those who fought in all the great campaigns — in Europe, Africa and the Far East. Here too are the words of prisoners, partisans, saboteurs and soldiers in private armies.
