The Autobiography of the British Soldier: From Agincourt to Basra, in His Own Words by John Lewis-Stempel
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


From Agincourt to Waterloo, from Dunkirk to the Gulf War, and everywhere in between, one man has served in all these battles. This is the story of Britain at war from the perspective of that man: the autobiography of the British soldier. In a comprehensive series of 200 first-hand accounts, this anthology offers a huge variety of views on the experience of war - from a letter written by Oliver Cromwell to the Speaker of Parliament, to a First World War's soldier's last letter home to his son, and a powerful description of what it was like to be on the Sir Galahad when it was hit by a missile in the Falklands conflict of the 80s, right up to life as a frontline soldier on the ground in Basra. Winner of impossible victories, cannon fodder for the Western Front, thin khaki line against Hitler - wherever and whenever, the British soldier has done his duty. This is his story, in his own words.
