About

World At War is a new WW2 history site edited by leading military historian Paul Reed.

Paul Reed was born in the 1960s and has had a lifelong interest in the Second World War. His father is a WW2 veteran, who fought at Anzio. All his uncles were in WW2 and he grew up like most kids of his generation, in the shadow of the war: childhood books, comics, films and toys were all about the war! Paul first visited Normandy in 1979 and for the past 30 years has worked as a battlefield guide, historian and author of books (including the best-selling Walking D-Day). He also works in television and has appeared on screen in many programmes from Dig WW2, War Hero in My Family to BBC’s Who Do You Think You Are. He is currently working on a WW2 archaeology programme about Dunkirk for Channel 4.

The World At War website is a way of telling many stories both new and old about the titanic struggle that was the Second World War.
