"In this book he tells in graphic terms his own personal story of the North-West European campaign,
from the August of 1944 to the February of 1945. A `replacement`, he joined a unit of motorized
infantry attached to the 7th Armoured Division (the famous `Desert Rats`) in the final stages of the
invasion of France and Germany. He took part in the liberation of Ghent; the attempt to relieve
the Airborne Division surrounded at Arnhem; the awful Bastogne holocaust; the crossing of the Rhine.
He writes of these experiences in a forthright style devoid of heroics, concerning himself not witb
campaigns but with men - with his own thoughts and feelings.". Bookseller Inventory # 020806
