With many items restricted, and daily activities curbed, watch as Mike Rogers recounts the various military activities across Europe, Africa and the Far East; the cinematic delights; and constant cruelties of living in an area of London attacked by various flying-craft. In his diary, Mike Rogers records vivid impressions of his experiences during the war-time period.
Thoughtful, moving, and often amusing, Mike Rogers’ account offers a fascinating commentary on human courage, the strength of purpose, and provides compelling details of many pivotal and historic moments of a bygone age.
