‘At a time when Second World War veterans are getting fewer and fewer, A Time to Fight provides a timely tribute. The excellent individual photographs, accompanied by their personal stories, provide a fascinating record. A book to treasure for posterity’ Neil Barber, Author
‘As a historian and an actor I found it a fascinating mix. We’ve read veterans tales before - but there’s something particularly touching about the portraits that accompany their memories here. The young and old face each other, battling over the past, and the cumulative effect of the stories and pictures is a kind of collective yearning for heartfelt connection with a yes distant but (crucially) still living past’ Rick Warden, Band of Brothers
‘My uncle fought the rear-guard with the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders at St Valery; he fought for most of the next 5 years with the 51st Highland Division, and my biggest regret is that I never spoke to him about his experiences in WW2. In the next decade or so the memories of those that fought will disappear from living memory. A Time To Fight captures beautifully a snapshot of some of those memories’ James Deegan, MC Former SAS RSM and Author.
