Overview
-

In this delightful book, scores of British soldiers tell their amazing stories of life – and death - in the front line of the Allies’ advance from Normandy to Hitler’s Germany.

In eleven months of bitter fighting the combined efforts of the British and their allies ground down their ruthless enemy. Each and every man has a unique story to tell, whether they were infantry, tank crews, gunners, sappers or in vital logistic and supporting units. Their experiences make for powerful and fascinating reading. Firsthand accounts of the landings, liberation of towns and villages, fierce actions, not all successful, the cost of war in life and material being home the magnitude of the venture and the range of emotions that were experienced by generals and the most junior soldiers.
