DESCRIPTION

In 1944 thousands of teenagers and young adults who had never held a gun or left their own country’s shores found themselves caught up in the world’s darkest hours: the final year of World War II. Now, almost 70 years later in Last War Heroes, these men’s stories are brought back to life.

From the landings on D-Day beaches to uncovering the true horrors of Nazi Germany, these intimate portraits take you to the heart of the battle as the Allied Forces’ sweep from Normandy to Berlin.
