V for Victory - Celebrating Our Finest Hour

Description

On the occasion of the 70th Anniversary of VE-Day revel in the sounds and stars that led our Nation to victory!

Glenn Miller on the wireless... sing-songs in the barrack rooms, factories and pubs... lasting romance kindled by the melodies of Vera Lynn, Anne Shelton and a host of great dance bands. PLUS, the history and gripping drama of WWII captured in authentic speeches, home-front sounds and fascinating eye-witness commentaries.

70 years later, the sounds of the war years resound like no other - and this superb wartime tribute captures the most indelible memories in one fabulously evocative collection!
