The depth of human spirit.
History books are full of heroes. From legendary leaders commanding enormous armies, to soldiers bravely charging into chaotic battlefields motivated only by duty to their kin and country.
But what of those whose noble efforts have not been so visibly recognised? What of the unknown people from countries around the world, of every race and religion, whose quiet acts of sacrifice affected the war effort in extraordinary, life-changing ways? They too are heroes.
Through 14 lesser-known stories, Parting Words commemorates the astonishing bravery shown by the unsung heroes of the two World Wars, showcasing the depth of human spirit, the hope that unites humanity, and the similarities that bridge our cultural differences.
