Powerful, brave and inspiring stories of war at the front and at home - from ordinary people.

This remarkable book gives first-hand accounts of the war experiences of working-class men and women from Castlemilk, Glasgow.

The stories are from the front and at home. We learn what life was like before war intervened: the streets and the fields, the jobs at the factory and the blacksmith, the large families with wholesome food and the church-going. After the war, the lives they once knew were forever vanished, and some of them faced another struggle to fit in to a changing world.

Few talked about their wartime experiences but, here, they tell John Miller the stories of their experiences. Unusually, these are not the accounts of politicians and Generals but of the unheard ordinary people coping with the realities of war.

We might expect such stories to be bitter or harrowing. Instead, they are full of courage, tolerance and stoicism. Among the unspeakable horrors of war we find acts of human kindness
