1st ed., 1987. 215 pp., 2 maps. D.j., 23 x 16cm. Owner's bookplate & "1st Northants Yeo" penned to half-title page o/w Nr.FINE. In this sequel to his masterly and highly acclaimed Tank! the author continues the compelling story of his experiences in the last months of World War II. Only twenty years old but already a lance-corporal commanding a tank in the 1st Northants Yeomanry, the author landed in Normandy on D-Day + 9 and endured almost continuous fighting until October. In the battle for Caen and on the road to Arnhem, the author rapidly changed from an idealistic boy into an experience-hardened soldier. The unique quality of his writing stresses the human drama and personal trauma of battle.
