This is one of the best books I have read about the campaigns in France and Germany.
Very well written and highlights the very close comradeship of tank crews at times of
great stress.

A great read. As a former armoured cavalryman with the British Army I have a better insight than most to what combat from inside a tank is like. I enjoyed Bill Close's description. I could recommend this to anyone from an historical and enjoyable read perspective,.

What a great read. Will written by a funny man who served throughout WW2 starting as a corporal and finishing as a company commander with two Military Crosses to his name. Anyone who loses 11 tanks and survives to apologies to Her Majesty the Queen is worth reading.

The book covered the regiment and the period which I am researching well. Some of the detail I was expecting was a little 'thin', but in the main it is suitable for my purposes.

I don't doubt this book isn't good as other reviews have said. How ever, from the reviews I was expecting a real in depth look at tank warfare in WW2 in great detail. However the only details were in the mundane. And when an engagement took place it was literally summed up in no more then 5 sentences.
Bill close was a hero no doubt but just not the book I expected.

As an ex tanks of 25 years service from 1977 to 2002 this book took me back to the days of being in a Tank crew. From gunner through to Commander.

Possibly the only book to tell the story of tank men in World War 2 - from the disaster of Calais, then North Africa, and up through Europe, past Calais into Germany five years later. Bill Close was a friend of my father, Major Valentine Hehir, MBE, who is mentioned in the song whose words appear at the end of this modest, touching and vibrant account of five years of these heroic men's lives.

A tankies war written by a tanky. He tells it well, though at times it is more Walt Disney War Horse than Band of Brothers. If you want it from 1939 to 1945 this is a book for you. War from the turret of several tanks. I always envied the tankies rumbling here, there and everywhere,I neen't have bothered, they cracked on and also cracked up like the rest of us.
