Synopsis

In the Air by Ann Kramer

Taking Part in the Second World War offers a history of the war told through the words of the people who took part. From airmen to cooks and from ambulance drivers to front-line soldiers, the books explain how ordinary people coped with extraordinary situations: the Blitz, rationing, the fierce fighting of D-Day or the Battle of the Atlantic. Author Ann Kramer skilfully weaves the threads together to build up a portrait of not only the events of the war, but also of those who served future generations so well.
