Memoirs, Biographies and Diaries

While not as controversial as the Great War, the evidently 'juster' nature of the cause saw to that the Second World War spawned perhaps an even greater mountain of war literature, memoirs, battle histories, diaries, letters home and biographies of the leading commanders as the earlier conflict.

There are accounts by warriors from Spitfire pilots to U-boat captains as well as the assessments of later historians
