Bill Cheall fought at Dunkirk, North Africa and Sicily. He was in the first wave on Gold Beach on D-Day and ended his war in Germany. Since Bill's WW2 memoirs were published, many former comrades have come forward with stories and diaries of their own, all forming part of the jigsaw of Bill's war.

The Fighting Through podcast gives you the stories behind the story. You’ll hear memoirs and memories of veterans connected to Bill's war in some way – and much more. So you're going to hear some great, unpublished history.
