  • Description

Drawing from first-hand interviews, diaries and memoirs of those involved in the VE Day celebrations in 1945, VE DAY: The People's Story paints an enthralling picture of a day that marked the end of the war in Europe and the beginning of a new era. VE Day affected millions of people in countless ways, and the voices in this book - from both Britain and abroad, from civilians and service men and women, from the famous and the not-so-famous - provide a valuable social picture of the times. Mixed with humour as well as tragedy, rejoicing as well as sadness, regrets of the past and hopes for the future, VE Day is an inspiring record of one of the great turning points in history.
