This blog is about my Dad's war memoirs - his World War 2 Army Diary.
The blog is here to keep people up to date with developments in tracking down old comrade connections of my Dad. There are already several interesting bits of news at the Fighting Through from Dunkirk to Hamburg web site.
Read about poignant progress in tracking down former comrades as well as the discovery of Dad's pre-war car still alive and revving!
The book was published by Pen and Sword in May 2011. Available through Amazon or Pen and Sword direct and most bookshops.

The stories connected to the story
Great unpublished history!
Bill Cheall fought at Dunkirk, North Africa and Sicily, was in the first wave on Gold Beach on D-Day, and finally went to Germany. Since Bill's WW2 memoirs were published, many former comrades and families have come forward with stories and diaries of their own, all forming part of the jigsaw of Bill's war. The aim of these podcasts is to bring the memories to life and honour the soldiers, airmen and seamen who were connected to Bill in some way.
