Stroud, 1st ed., 1996. 218 pp., many photo-ills., ills., & plans. D.j., 24 x 16cm. Tape removed from e.p.'s o/w V.G.+. Scores of British soldiers from almost every echelon of the British Army tell their amazing stories of D-Day and of the eleven months of frenzied warfare that followed. Illustrated with contemporary photographs and sketches this book recalls memories of fearful apprehension as the landing craft beached on the foreshores of Normandy, the sheer elation experienced at the liberation of towns and villages in France and the Low Countries, the tragedy of 'Market Garden', and the final brutal battles to pierce the Siegfried Line and reach the Baltic. A moving piece of history.
