Format: Kindle Edition
I bought this book because my late father was also involved with the BEF through Cherbourg in 1940 and like many others, never mentioned the war very much and I'm trying to fill in some of the gaps. It seems unbelievable today that Britain was still sending men to fight further along the French coast whilst dealing with the near total disaster of evacuating Dunkirk a week earlier. The sole purpose of this campaign seems to have been to delay the German advance and coming invasion of Britain at any cost to gain a little more time to prepare the home front.
This short account is written as a personal diary and appears to be in unedited form. It's also very specific to the writer's own and immediate experiences and the difficulties encountered both advancing and more importantly, retreating safely amid the ensuing confusion. It plays another important but small part in building the picture of Britain's desperate days to defend herself against Nazi Germany.
The only real downside, is the last quarter of the book where the author's correspondence to various military departments are reproduced showing how sorely aggrieved he is at a sergeant's military award believing, incorrectly, that that this man had nominated himself.

I choose this rating because the book was a big success with my step father who was in the 52nd Lowland. He is 96 and can still remember it clearly. He said some things are a little out but still got immense enjoyment from this book.

I would have given 5 stars, but the lack of maps make it difficult to follow properly, this is the case for many war stories, however its a very interesting event.

this is an undoubted 'savage, attack on a brave Scottish Soldier who was correctly decorated for his heroism Backed by correspondence from the Top Miltary personnel. The so called facts in book are the imagination of a bitter loser and racist.
