Jim’s War – The saga of one man’s struggle against the Nazi hordes by J W Pearce

£8.99

For William Pearce ‘granddad’ was the obvious target; and the war veteran opened up to provide a raft of reminiscences. Now faithfully recorded with word for word accuracy in this, his mainly light-hearted book, ‘Jim’s War’ is a unique account of wartime active service from an ordinary man braver than he would give himself credit for.

Description

Until my forties all I’d known about Dad’s World War II ‘active service’ was that he’d enjoyed it (‘best days of my life, son,’ he’d always say, to the mock despair of his beloved Winnie, my mother). As to what dad had actually done in six and a quarter years of army life, between 1939 and 1946… well, Jim had always remained relatively coy about it. This all changed when dad’s third-born grandson was given a school project that required an interview with a war veteran. For William Pearce ‘granddad’ was the obvious target; and the war veteran opened up to provide a raft of reminiscences. Now faithfully recorded with word for word accuracy in this, his mainly light-hearted book, ‘Jim’s War’ is a unique account of wartime active service from an ordinary man braver than he would give himself credit for.
