Bill Gentry's War 1939-45
Letters Edited by Sally Mathieson

How does a soldier cope with years of enforced sparation from the family he loves? What does he really think about the war he is fighting? Bill Gentry (later to becom Major General Sir William Gentry) answers these and other questions in the very frank letters he wrote home to his wife, Lalla, while overseas as an officer with 2nd New Zealand Division during World War II.

In these absorbing letters Bill brings to us the experience of life in the turbulent days of war. We share the uncertainties, the pleasures, the tedium and the triumphs, the comradeship and the heartache. We enter the world of 50 years ago through the eyes of keen observer and travel from Maadi Camp in Egypt to Greece, Crete, Syria, Libya, Tunista and Norther Italy up to Trieste.
