While a rich tapestry of background sound effects transports the viewer from training camps to battlefields, actors provide regionally authentic dialogue based on forensic lip-reading of the silent footage. Later, we see and hear an officer issuing instructions for the forthcoming attack.
We Were Young and at War: The First-Hand Story of Young Lives Lived and Lost in World War II
Yet watching a technologically enhanced sequence in which a first world war soldier playfully juggles a beer bottle, then strums it like a guitar, all I could think was how real, how immediate, how profoundly truthful it all felt. It is an endeavour in which he has succeeded superbly.

Often it is seen as between the United Kingdom, Commonwealth, America and Germany whereas this book makes clear the awful consequences for most of Europe, especially the eastern states. In fact it is the rather banal letters between Brian Poole and his America penfriend Trudi, and the diary of David Hogan, another American, which show the contrast at its most stark.
I think this is a pity as young people who were evacuated in the UK or interned in America also had harsh stories to relate, although not on the same scale as those from Stalingrad or Lodz. However, the diary entries and letters home from both sides show all too clearly the hardship, the hunger and the sheer terror of this war.
