The troops of the Durham Light Infantry (DLI) were not seasoned soldiers but young recruits and conscripts, which makes the history of their extraordinary battle even more remarkable. Drawing on personal accounts and extensive taped interviews, this collaboration between the DLI Museum and the Imperial War Museum Sound Archive documents the events between 1940 and 1943 that led this 'band of brothers' from Dunkirk to Burma's impenetrable jungles and, finally, the horrors of the Bergen-Belsen concentration camp.
