Details

War Stories is a fascinating account of thirty-four ordinary individuals swept up in the turbulence of war. Spanning four centuries and four continents, many of these stories have remained untold until now.

From the courage of Edward Seagar, who survived the Charge of the Light Brigade, to the cunning of Krystyna Skarbek, a spy and saboteur during the Second World War, learn how the boundaries of love, bravery, suffering and terror were redefined by these incredible people.

Peter Snow is a highly respected journalist, broadcaster and author. His books include To War With Wellington and he covered the BBC documentaries Battlefield Britain and The World’s Greatest Twentieth Century Battlefields with his son Dan.

Ann MacMillan, the great granddaughter of David Lloyd George, has worked in radio and news. When she moved to London, MacMillan married Peter Snow and was the Managing Editor of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation for thirteen years.
