TILL VICTORY: Letters of Allied Soldiers
From North Africa to Germany, Italy and France, discover or rediscover the history of the Second World War in Western Europe from 1939 to 1945.
Through their letters and personal notebooks, follow the path of fifty Allied soldiers (American, British, French, Canadian, New Zealand, ...) while they liberate our continent from the Nazi yoke, sometimes at the price of their life.
Narrated in chronological order and in their historical context, their portraits are illustrated with many original photographs, objects and uniforms whose stories are equally exceptional.
Whether they come from an elite soldier, a war doctor, a general or a USO dancer, these poignant testimonies, written in the mud of the European battlefields, reveal hopes , the doubts and fears of these young people sent to hell.
TILL VICTORY is above all a book on peace.
Softcover, 375 pages, West-France editions - 2018. French language.
