Using the Imperial War Museum's vast archive of personal diaries, this remarkable anthology examines the stories of ordinary men and women who fought, and in some cases died, on the front line and home front during the Second World War.

The Words of War features diverse first-hand accounts from individuals who took part in the key campaigns of the war. In the words of the young officer facing defeat and capture at Dunkirk, the pilot officer losing friends and comrades during the Battle of Britain, the Land Girl dealing with a new life in the countryside, the Royal Naval seaman fighting the weather in the Russian convoys, the infantryman about to hit the beaches on D-Day, the bomb aimer aboard an Avro Lancaster as it heads towards another German target, the soldier fighting in the Far East against the Japanese, and many others, this unique publication vividly documents the harsh realities of day-to-day life during the conflict.

With each diary entry placed in context within a historical narrative that weaves together the complete story for the reader, The Words of War provides a poignant and emotional insight into the human cost of war, whilst shedding new light on this unforgettable period in history.
