A time when innocent lives were threatened by a ruthless enemy, when people of all ages lived in fear. Sound familiar? No it's not 2020, but 1939, and a generation of young men and women rallied to the cause to fight fascism, oppression and tyranny so that future generations could have their freedom and hopefully live in peace. A Soldier's Story is the amazing account of one such young man, Neville 'Timber' Wood, who, despite fighting in many of the major engagements of the Second World War, including Dunkirk, El Alamein and D-Day, survived to become a much-loved husband and father. It's brilliantly written and recounts the courage, determination, dedication and, somewhat surprisingly, the humour of the soldiers involved. I highly recommend it.
