Summary Clifford Guard was born in 1923, in the South Wales city of Swansea, into a life of abject poverty. By age 15, he sought escape by joining the merchant navy, and acted on an imperative from his father to reach America where he could forge a different future. When the Second World War broke out, he joined the US Army, where he was nicknamed 'Limey' by two friends he'd endure battle with -- Trix and The Greek. They spent the next 11 months driving the Nazi Army from France. GI Limey is a story about the bond that keeps soldiers together, through the danger of combat and the decades after. Clifford Guard examines how war shaped his identity, one defined by two allied countries an ocean apart.
