Quick Overview

This compelling anthology has been drawn from the archives of 'Reader's Digest' magazine, and features first person accounts of adventure, courage, horror and triumph. This is the
story of the war as experienced by soldiers and civilians - ordinary people caught in extraordinary times - whose tales give a powerful insight into the conflict that changed the world. 'My
Ride on a Torpedo', by the captain of the destroyer St Laurent in 1940, describes how his quick thinking saved an entire ship when a 600-pound warhead of TNT broke loose on deck;
'Night Train to Chittagong' tells of a dangerous railway journey from Bengal; and, in 'Christmas Eve at Frontstalag 122' a leader of the French underground network tells how a
coldhearted Nazi prison guard melted before his charges' makeshift creche. The facsimile articles offer a fascinating and nostalgic glimpse of the personal side of war, all recounted in
inimitable 'Reader's Digest' style.
