Press Release: November 27, 2020
Clément Horvath is a 32-year-old history-buff from France. For more than 15 years, he has collected thousands of letters from American, British, Canadian or French soldiers from the Second World War, and published these moving and new wartime accounts in his first book, Till Victory, which was an award-winning success in France last year.
Although he hosts a podcast in English in which he interviews World War II veterans and received the "History 2019" award from the hands of Princess Caroline of Monaco and First Lady Brigitte Macron, Clément insists that he is not a professional historian, simply a history enthusiast eternally grateful for his freedom: « This is my way of saying ‘Thank You’ »
75 years after the end of World War II, thanks to Pen & Sword Books, the English version Till Victory: the Second World War by those who were there is now available worldwide. It covers the whole war in Western Europe from 1939 to 1945 through the unpublished letters and diaries of more than 50 soldiers from all Allied nations, and honours men and women who never had a chance to tell their stories...
