Sussex War Heroes
The Untold Story of Our Second World War SurvivorseBook - 2016
A generation of ordinary young men and women were thrust into the most extraordinary of situations some 70 years ago. Sussex is full of war heroes, but soon they will be gone, along with their stories. This is not a book about Victoria Cross winners, but the untold accounts of everyday heroes, such as former train engineer Bob Morrell, who was beaten, starved, and tortured in the brutal Japanese prisoner camps. It is about ex-pub landlord John Akehurst, one of Bomber Command's finest, who gave the Germans the run-around Northern Europe after being shot down. It is about 86-year-old Shindy Perez and her remarkable escape from the gas chambers of Auschwitz.
