This is a tale of what life was like for even the most ordinary of people during the turbulent times of World War II. Follow the story of a man who did not volunteer to be a part of the war but simply gracefully accepted his duty as a conscript - highlighting the great courage of soldiers, and how it is the little people of this nation that have made it what it is.

As diaries were forbidden during the war, this book provides a rare insight into what soldiers were going through. In this case specifically, we get to understand what the involvement in the Battle of Normandy entailed.

Joe Thorpe

Joseph has always had a fascination with WWII and would listen to countless stories retold by his paternal grandmother, Hazel (John's wife). Sadly, John passed away when Joseph was three years of age. Therefore, John's upbringing and accounts of war have only emerged from his writing. The inner historian in Joseph felt like it was the right thing to have his grandfather's story shared with the world. Lest we forget.
