Forgotten Voices Of The Second World War by Max Arthur
Max Arthur has again gone deep into the Imperial war Museum Sound Archive to create this landmark oral history of the most devastating conflict the world has ever seen, The Second World War. The Sound Archive – the most important of its kind in the world – holds a vast quantity of interviews with soldiers, sailors, airmen and civilians recorded over the last thirty years. After months of detailed research and having listened to hundreds of hours of interviews, he has pulled together the story of the war through these powerful and moving testimonies.
Here, in the raw, are the personal experiences of ordinary men and women from around the world, including British, Irish, French, German, American, Japanese, Australian and New Zealand accounts. Between them, their individual voices make up an immediate and vivid narrative of the Second World War. With many of the interviews published for the first time, Forgotten Voices of the Second World War is a unique and stunning history.
