The Daily Telegraph Chronicle Of The Second World War Summary


From the pages of Britain's most popular newspaper is the first-hand story of the Second World War. The items selected are presented in chronological sequence so that the narrative unfolds with the immediacy and suspense it generated at the time. Contemporary headlines and photographs combine to convey the atmosphere of a newspaper seeking to cover "total war". Besides eye-witness accounts of the action in the various theatres of war by the Daily Telegraph's own war correspondents such as Christopher Buckley, Richard Capell, L. Marsland Gander, Douglas Williams and Cornelius Ryan, the book also contains many stories culled from the "Home Front". Alongside reports of such stirring occurences as the Battle of the River Plate, Dunkirk, the Battle of Britain, Pearl Harbour, the Fall of Singapore, the Battle of Alamein, the Dambuster Raid, D_Day, Arnhem and the Atomic Bomb will be found evocative vignettes of the black-out, evacuees, rationing, land girls, the Home Guard and attempts at continuing everyday life. The trivial, touching and often hilarious detail is deliberately juxtaposed, as in the war itself, with profound and cataclysmic events.
