Uncle Bert's Second World War diary

A.E. Field (Compiled and edited by Maree Klein) SHOP:9780646532684

The Memorial Shop stocks a wide range of independent and self-published military history books. These titles have limited distribution and are not commonly available through major retailers, yet they can offer readers valuable personal accounts of wartime experiences.

Albert Edward Field's diary covers his experiences fighting at Tobruk, and in Benghazi, Syria, and Java. Finally captured by the Japanese, he then spent three and a half years as a POW. Much of Field's diary is a day by day account of the life of a prisoner, and highlights how mateship, courage, and humour helped soldiers survive to make it home.

Soft cover, photographs, 360 pages.
