From Pontefract to Palestine
September 1939. Britain is once again at war with Germany. This is the story of a young man whose experience of war took him on a journey from his native Yorkshire to France as part of the British Expeditionary Force, evacuation from Dunkirk then to North Africa, the Battle if El Alamein, and finally to Palestine. A poignant memoir of one soldier's experiences of war half a world away.
