War Stories is a fascinating account of thirty four ordinary individuals who were 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.
Through tales of spies, escapes, innovation and humanity these uplifting stories will provide a rare insight into the endurance of human spirit – through even the toughest times.
