Synopsis

Under One Flag How Indigenous and Ethnic Peoples of the Commonwealth and British Empire Helped Great Britain Win World War II by Erica Myers-Davis, Prince Harry, L.Cpl. Johnson, VC Beharry

This is the story of how Indigenous and Ethnic Peoples of the Commonwealth and British Empire helped Great Britain win WWII. Get Publishing has engaged MIDAS PR to promote Under One Flag. Until now, schools have taught World War II from a largely European perspective. As post-war Britain has a widely diverse ethnic population it is important that children (11 + years) of ethnic origin know that their grandparents and others played an important role in the defence of Great Britain. Each page of this striking book is packed with information that young people - or anyone else - will find both exciting and informative. The book is divided into six sections each featuring maps, sidebars, original photos, and more: Introduction: Preface by HRH Prince Philip; Australia & New Zealand; India & the Far East; Africa; The West Indies; Canada; and, Activities; Index; and Acknowledgements. This book was inspired by and written for the Royal Commonwealth Ex-Services League who will receive a royalty from book sales.
