On the Front Line PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

On the Front Line free pdf "Tales From The Front Line" is an extraordinary collection of stories from the wars and conflicts of the 20th Century that shaped the modern world. Not your average history book, these astonishing real life tales are told by witnesses on the ground, underground, in the air and at sea. The books appeal is drawn from the variety of subjects as the book is not only told from the perspective of the common soldier, but also from prisoners of war, slaves in German work camps, war administrators, under-cover spies and ordinary citizens who witnessed historical events first hand. The book boasts a rare assembly of 20 war stories. In addition, each tale is brought to life by artefacts that author Michael Hambrook worked tirelessly to obtain, from a rare photograph of the pilot who dropped the atomic bomb on Nagasaki to poems written by British POWs. The standout, however, is a never-before (and probably never to be again) published greeting card from Germany in 1939, which was personally signed by Adolf Hitler and confirmed by Christies of London as a genuine signature.

About Michael Hambrook

Michael Hambrook's lifelong obsession with military history can be attributed to spending several years of his childhood growing up in the 'Bomb Alley' region of London, where he recalls listening to the Luftwaffe bomb the British boats docking on the River Thames. As an adult in South Africa, Michael was a reservist in the British South Africa Police Force and participated in security operations during the South African Border War.
