The stories behind the story
Bill Cheall fought at Dunkirk, North Africa and Sicily. He was in the first wave on Gold Beach on D-Day, and finally went to Germany. Since Bill's WW2 memoirs were published, many former comrades and families have come forward with stories and diaries of their own, all connected to Bill's story in some way.

A poignant visit to where my Dad was evacuated on 31 May 1940 - the renowned East Mole at Dunkirk, also known as La Jette Est or the Jetty.
The East Mole was right next to Dunkirk Harbour and was where the majority of soldiers were rescued during the Dunkirk evacuation.
If you're visiting France, find the Dunkirk museum and you're nearly there just a mile along the beach.
I’m feeling very honoured to be interviewed by Angus Wallace, the host of the WW2 Podcast, about my Dad’s memoirs. Angus’s show is about chats with people who’ve had books published on military history and he asks me all sorts of questions about Dad and his memoirs.
