Stroud, 1st ed., 1993. 252 pp., numerous photo-ills., maps & plans. D.j., 24 x 16cm. FINE. The 11th Armoured Division, famous for its Black Bull insignia, was widely recognised as being among the best armoured divisions in north-west Europe during the Second World War. This book tells the story of the Division in the words of the soldiers who fought with it. They describe its part in the three ferocious battles in Normandy ' Epsom, Goodwood and Bluecoat, the great 'Swan' to Amiens, the taking of Antwerp, right flanking for Market Garden, back-up in the Ardennes and the final slog into Germany across well-defended river barriers, to the liberation of Belsen, Lubeck and the Danish frontier. The Division suffered 10,000 casualties with almost 2,000 lost in action.
