BROWNED OFF AND BLOODY-MINDED
by Alan Allport

More than three-and-a-half million men served in the British Army during the Second World War, the vast majority of them civilians who had never expected to become soldiers and had little idea what military life was going to be like. This rich social history examines the experience of the greatest and most terrible war in history from the perspective of these ordinary, extraordinary men, who were plucked from their peacetime families and workplaces and sent to fight for King and Country. Touching on issues of class, sex, crime, trauma, and national identitythe book provides an enlightening perspective on how a generation of modern-minded young men responded to the challenges of a brutal conflict.
