“We can only do the right as we see the right and reverently commit our cause to God… The ultimate issues are that [if Hitler’s primitive doctrine of Might is Right were allowed to triumph,] the people of the world would be kept in the bondage of fear, and all hopes of settled peace and the security of justice and liberty among nations would be ended.”
(King George VI, 3 September 1939)
Following their Kings’ call to serve the cause of liberty and human rights, hundreds of brave young Grenadian men and women volunteered to serve as part of the British Army and Royal Air Force in the First and Second World Wars. Many of them were decorated, many died, and many returned as honoured veterans.
This illustrated book captures the stories of the Grenada contingents to the World Wars of the 20th century, and seeks to address some of the grievances that the colonial subjects of Great Britain felt after the wars.
