Review this Book

Tell Me Why


We only have one go at life. There is no second chance - this is all we get.

Tell Me Why is an exciting journey from the Second World War to the 21st century. It links a personal and private story to everyone’s public history, it is about living through a post war childhood, adolescent angst, commitment, families, children, love and loss. 

Read the poignant war time story of Syd Rogers - and how did Valentin Alexandrovich Arkhipov save the world and help us all stay alive? Move from the grey post war world through the flowers and beads of the 1960s and into post millennium Britain and begin to understand how politics, popular culture, education and revolution tried to change the world.

Laugh, cry and immerse yourself in all kinds of hilarious and heart stopping moments. In Tell Me Why Roger Smith has written an interactive, roller coaster of a story. He knows that once we die we become fiction, because once we stop speaking for ourselves, someone else will tell our story.

Tell Me Why is a well-written example of memoir. The author explores memory, reflection, and researched detail was a fine balance. Roger Smith uses his words with poise to share a personal and historical narrative with great effect
