    Published in conjunction with the Imperial War Museum, this three-book collection brings together a fascinating and authoritative social history of the Second World War.

    A Prayer for Gallipoli covers the Great War from the point of view of a chaplain. Kenneth Best had no military training, so to fulfil his pastoral role, he had to get close to the front line and work with troops as they were under fire. As his empathy for the troops grew larger, he became more and more disgusted with their leaders. These diaries provide an insight into the horrific realities of trench warfare.

    The Secret History of the Blitz by Joshua Levine looks at the people that are not normally mentioned during accounts of the War - those spivs, outcasts and unsung heroes who were in the shadows; and D-Day to Victory features the diaries of a British tank commander as the war finally came to an end.

    All written using archive and primary sources, these are candid and compelling reads about the triumphs and tragedies of war.

    Acclaimed historian Rick Stroud provides a unique and moving narrative of the women who volunteered to be trained by the Special Operations Executive (SOE) set up by Winston Churchill in 1941 in Lonely Courage. He explains how they dropped into Nazi-held France to support various underground networks both during and after the Second World War.

    Although it started off small, by the time of France's liberation in 1944 around 400,000 French citizens (nearly 2 per cent of the population) were involved in the Resistance. Very early on in its creation, it was decided that women would play a vital role with 38 agents being recruited from all walks of life. They all knew France well, were fluent in the French language and were prepared to sacrifice everything to help defeat the enemy.

    The women trained alongside the men, learning how to disappear into the background, how to operate a radio transmitter and how to kill a man with their bare hands. Once trained they were infiltrated behind the lines by parachute or tiny aircraft that could land in remote fields. Some of the women went on to lead thousands of Resistance fighters, while others were arrested, brutally interrogated and sent to concentration camps where they endured torment and death.

    This book tells their story and sheds light on what life was really like for these brave, talented women.
