War Stories is a fascinating account of ordinary men and women swept up in the turbulence of war.

These are the stories –many untold until now –of twenty-eight individuals and three couples who have pushed the boundaries of love, bravery, suffering and terror beyond the imaginable. Told with vivid narrative flair and full of unexpected insights, War Stories moves from tales of spies, escapes and innovation to uplifting acts of humanity, celebrating men and women whose wartime experiences are beyond compare.
