The aim of Carl's work is simply to help contribute to the ever growing preservation of memories and actions of both those who fought and those who fell during the Second World War, through respectful, careful and detailed research and publishing.

His work is written, and presented, in a style that may be read by people of all ages, from school children to senior citizen. Much of his work combines fast paced action scenes, interwoven with moving eyewitness accounts and moments of reflection on the actual realities of war.

It is hoped that this work will help ensure that such knowledge, information and the memory of the sacrifices made by that generation, are preserved for posterity.

Carl Shilleto's inspiration for his writing and research career lies with his interest in military history since early childhood. Having grown-up during a period when many Second World War veterans were starting to recall their wartime experiences, he was particularly influenced by the wartime recollections of his grandparents. This prompted him to initially research and study the military careers of his family.

The author's grandparents and uncles served in the British Army throughout 1930s in the Northumberland Fusiliers, East Yorkshire Regiment and West Yorkshire Regiment.

During the Second World War they saw active service in the Royal Scots, Reconnaissance Corps, Royal Artillery, Royal Norfolk Regiment and Corps of Military Police. Between them they saw action in many theatres of war: from the beaches of Northern France and Normandy; through Belgium and the lowlands of Holland in North-West Europe; to the deserts of North Africa, hills and mountains of Italy and Austria and the heat and monsoon of the Far East.

All were wounded while on active service but all survived the war.

After both helping and working, as a researcher, with several military historians, in particular the prolific military historian and writer Charles Whiting (aka Leo Kessler, Duncan Harding, John Kerrigan, Klaus Konrad, K.N. Kostov, Ian Harding & Richard Douglas), Carl embarked upon his own writing, research and battlefield guiding career while preparing for and then studying for his University of Leeds degree, with honours, in History and American Studies.

To date Carl has had over a dozen works published and has 20 years experience of working as a freelance military historian; advising, guiding and writing about the battlefields of the Second World War.

He is also the the founder and project manager for the online memorial archive and website the Fallen Heroes of Normandy. The world's largest online resource detailing and concentrating on all the fallen, from all nationalities, of the Normandy battlefields from World War Two. Presently the online memorial archive has over 44,000 memorial pages.
