From the bestselling author of Normandy '44 and Sicily '43 comes the untold story of the Sherwood Rangers
took a certain type of courage to serve in a tank in World War Two.
Encased in steel, surrounded by highly explosive shells, a big and
slow-moving target, every crew member was utterly vulnerable to enemy
attack from all sides. Living - and dying - in a tank was a brutal way
to fight a war.
The Sherwood Rangers were one of the great
tank regiments. They had learned their trade the hard way, under the
burning sun of North Africa, on the battlefields of El Alamein and Alam
el Halfa. By the time they landed on Gold Beach on D-Day, they were
toughened by experience and ready for combat.
From that moment
on, the Sherwood Rangers were in the thick of the action til the war's
end. They and their Sherman tanks covered thousands of miles and endured
some of the fiercest fighting in Western Europe. The first British unit
to cross into Germany, their engagements stretch from the Normandy
beaches, to the bridges at Eindhoven, and the grinding crossing of the
Siegfried Line and on into the Nazi heartland.
Through compelling eye-witness testimony and James Holland's expert analysis of the war in the West, Brothers In Arms
brings to vivid life the final bloody scramble across Europe and gives
the most powerful account to date of what it was really like to fight in
the dying days of World War Two.
