We are very excited to welcome you to this website which is a place for you to read about people’s wartime experiences and to post your and your family’s stories about the Second World War. Because of my book, most of the stories which have been sent to me have been about escape from France during the invasion by Hitler’s armies, but we would be interested in any other family stories about the period. So please send us what you have on the submit a story page. Only a few stories are featured on the home page, use the search engine, the interactive map and the index page to find the full selection of stories available on the site. Also read our blogs which are full of comments on the stories and some appeals from people who sent them in.
In any case, don’t leave the site without leaving us a comment as we are keen to hear what you think and will act on your suggestions.
Don’t forget to come back and visit us again soon as we will be adding new stories and blogs all the time as they come in.
