The Legacy of Anne Frank

Our Price
£14.99
The exact date of Anne Frank’s death is unknown, though some sources consider 12 March 1945 to be the official date of death. At the time, the Red Cross concluded that Anne and her sister Margot died of typhus in Bergen-Belsen concentration camp at some time between 1 and 31 March 1945. However, new research by the Anne Frank House suggests that it is unlikely that they were still alive in March; their deaths must have occurred in February 1945.

Recommended reading: The Legacy of Anne Frank by Gillian Walnes Perry, co-founder of the Anne Frank Trust UK.

From her secret hiding place in wartime Amsterdam, the Jewish teenager Anne Frank wrote heart-wrenchingly about the terrors of a captivity that would ultimately end with her death at the hands of the Nazis. Although many books and literary analyses have been written about Anne Frank’s life and diary, none have explored the surprising influence she has had on young people in countries all over the world, helping to shape their moral framework and giving them critical life skills.

The Falklands War – There and Back Again – The Story of Naval Party 8901 by Mike Norman and Michael Jones.

On 1 April 1982 Major Mike Norman, commander of Naval Party 8901, was looking forward to a peaceful year-long tour of duty on the Falkland Islands. But events turned out differently, for the next day the Argentinians invaded and he and his small Royal Marines garrison found themselves fighting for their lives.

They took up defensive positions in and around Government House and on the approaches to Stanley to protect the Governor, Rex Hunt, and delay the enemy’s advance. They were prepared to die executing these orders. After a desperate battle against vastly superior numbers, Hunt ordered them to lay down their arms. As the surrender took place, an Argentinian told a Marine: ‘The Islands are ours now’. The response was simple: ‘We will be back’. They were, and this is their story.

The Royal Marines of Naval Party 8901 volunteered to join the Task Force and, some seventy-five days after the invasion, the men who were forced to watch the raising of the Argentine flag over the Islands were able, in return, to proudly run up the Falklands flag once more at Government House.

Mike Norman and Michael Jones’s dramatic account draws upon Norman’s vivid recollections, the log book and action reports of the defence of Government House and Stanley, the testimony of Marines under Mike Norman’s command and recently released government archives. It is a powerful and moving tribute to men who confronted the Argentinian invaders and then fought to regain the Falklands.
