Once Upon a Wartime

This series was started in 1995, the 50th anniversary of the end of the war, with Once Upon A Wartime about Arnhem. Molly Burkett thought it would be a good idea to ask the people that were actually in the second World War about their experiences and record them lest we forget what they went through. We also have First World War stories from people’s diaries.
