From the Author
This scenario was created originally by the author as a military tactical exercise. On retirement from the military, the author used the scenario to create the historically based novel. The book uses the 'snapshot' method of moving from one part of the action to another, and the reader sees the battles through both German and British eyes. As well as a cast of well known historical figures, the book also introduces many fictional characters who are typical of the soldiery on both sides. This is a fast paced war story with vivid desciptions of battle throughout.
