Drawn from archives in the North East of England, the poems, prose, doggerel and marching songs in this collection represent the response of ordinary men and women, soldiers or civilians, to the Second World War. Accompanied by the authors' commentary, and contemporary cartoons and illustrations, the verses follow the course of the war, celebrating battles such as Tobruk and D-Day, but also remembering those left behind on the home front or dead on the battlefields.
