Call up must have been shocking as well as inevitable for millions in 1939 and 1940. This diary records the experiences of one young man plucked from a life in Leicester and transported to Scotland, South Africa, Egypt and the desert in the wake of the Eighth Army. It is a story of new places and new way of life and of experiences which would have been unimaginable if not for the outbreak of war. He records his impressions of life on board ship, the continent of Africa, the impact of colonialism, time off in Cairo, the behaviour of his comrades and life in the desert on the fringes of the battles with Rommel.
From Leicester to Libya offers a first-hand glimpse of one man’s World War II.
