The Best 500 Cockney War Stories, Paperback / softback Book

The Best 500 Cockney War Stories Paperback / softback


The tone of this collection is determinedly humorous, reporting the lighter side of the conflict as viewed by its Cockney participants.

Even so, the grimness behind what was in reality a brutal and highly mechanised conflict cut through many of the memoirs. The collection of short memoirs, many illustrated by the famed Bert Thomas, is divided into five categories - Action, Lull, Hospital, High Seas and Here and There.

Prefaced by an introduction by Sir Ian Hamilton, the British Commander-in-Chief who oversaw the Allies' unhappy campaign in Gallipoli.
