"Max Arthur has found and interviewed the last twenty-one British veterans of [World War I]. The oldest of these men is 109, the youngest 104. In their own words they describe the extraordinary changes that have occurred during their lifetimes. Born in the reign of Queen Victoria, all have lived as adults through the Depression, the Second World War and the Millennium. But for these men, the Great War was the defining period of their lives. Some of them, mere boys at the outbreak, lied about their ages to join up. They saw action in the trenches, at sea and in the fledgling air services"--Dust jacket

Dambusters : a landmark oral history by Max Arthur ( Book )
13 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
On the 17th May 1943, nineteen Lancaster bomber crews gathered at a remote RAF station in Lincolnshire for a mission of extraordinary daring and high risk - a night raid on three crucial and heavily defended dams deep in the German industrial heartland. The raiders would have to fly across occupied Europe at a perilously low level and drop their bombs at a mere 60 feet above the water to destroy the dam walls. Eight planes never returned. Bestselling author Max Arthur has collected together first-hand accounts of the preparati- on, practise, organisation and the raid itself, and the sense of emptiness and loss at RAF Scampton when 52 men failed to return. From RAF personnel and civilians to Germans who witnessed the raid, this landmark oral history collection paints a moving and personal picture of one of the most famous operations of the Second World War

We will remember them : voices from the aftermath of the Great War by Max Arthur ( Book )
5 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The legacy of the Great War was just as deeply felt as the war itself and much longer lasting... Every community supported dozens of damaged men... We will remember them is the story of these men and their families, told in their own words. It depicts the dying months of the Great War, when victory was close, but would still claim the lives of tens of thousands. It describes the joys and disappointments of triumph, the shock of homecoming, and the painful readjustment to ordinary civilian life. And it shows how wives and children reacted to their men coming home -- often mentally and physically scarred, sometimes virtual strangers"--Dust jacket
Symbol of courage : a history of the Victoria Cross by Max Arthur ( Book )
4 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Symbol of Courage is a history of Britain's most famous medal, the Victoria Cross, and a tribute to the men who have won it." "The Victoria Cross can only be awarded for 'most conspicuous bravery, or some daring or pre-eminent act of valour or self-sacrifice or extreme devotion to duty in the presence of the enemy.' It has been awarded only 1,354 times since the Crimean War, the majority of medals going to British and Commonwealth troops." "Symbol of Courage brings the story of the medal to life. After telling of Queen Victoria's concern for her troops, and how she devised the Victoria Cross, there is a narrative history of every conflict in which the VC has been awarded - from the Crimean War to the Falklands. It also gives a complete listing of every VC holder with details of the action in which he won the medal."--Jacket
