Overview

Published to coincide with the 50th anniversary of VE Day, this inspiring book draws from first-hand interviews, diaries and memoirs. It paints an enthralling picture of a day that marked the end of the war in Europe and the beginning of a new era.

VE Day affected millions of people in countless ways. This book records a highly representative sample of those views, from both Britain and abroad, from civilians and service men and women, from the famous and not-so-famous, in order to provide a moving story and a valuable social picture of the times.

Mixed with humour as well as tragedy, rejoicing as well as sadness, regrets of the past and hopes for the future, Ten Days in May is an inspiring record of one of the great turning-points in history.
