Charlie - The Lancaster Gunner By Jeff Steel

More > volunteers for active service and joins the RAF's elite 44 squadron. His first operation is on the 1,000 bomber raid on Cologne.

More > experiences, after he died, 'I thought it would be nice if people could hear and read about his experiences, the story of the common man. On the tapes my Grandad asks if one of his grandchildren could do something with them. I had no idea what he did during the war. By doing this I am ensuring that his name and what he went through has not been forgotten.' Fred served with them through his training in the UK, over to Africa (at the end of El Alamein), the Invasion of Pantelleria, Sicily, & Italy, including the battles of the River Sangro, and Anzio. When Victory over Europe was declared he was then dispatched to Africa to begin training for the invasion of Japan.

Run Fast, Keep Low By Eleanor Broaders
Paperback: $13.15
Prints in 3-5 business days
Run Fast, Keep Low is something soldiers say to each other before they go on tour. It was also my prayer for my son every time he was deployed. My son suffered a seizure while on active duty in... More > Afghanistan in 2009. He never fully recovered and was medically discharged from the army in 2011. We were advised his seizure was caused by the combat stress of completing 3 overseas tours in 3 years. He served in Iraq in 2007 and in Kosovo in 2008. He has since been diagnosed with ME/CFS, Fibromyalgia, cognitive dysfunction and short term momory loss. I became his carer. Writing my thoughts as poetry helped me to cope with the changes to both our lives as I watched his transition from a raw recruit at 18, to a disabled war veteran at 22. We have had lots of help from various forces charities, including SSAFA and H4H. £2 from the sale of this book will be slit between these two charities.< Less
