5.0 out of 5 stars First rate
This is an excellent book, it follows Ron Henderson's journey through the war, starting with the spit and polish of barracks life to the carnage of D-Day, and onwards across Europe to Berlin.
The nuts and bolts of living in and operating a tank are well explained, as is the historical overview of each seperate battle and operation. I can thoroughly recommend this...

2.0 out of 5 stars Could have been good
I started to read this book due to the involvement of a particular trooper and his story. However, references to him are few and far between and the book is, more or less, a history lesson. One which most ex servicemen will be very familiar with. It could have been a very good book had it stuck to the story of the trooper's involvement in the war.

From 1942 to 1947 the author takes the reader into parts of history rarely read. I can relate to some of it because I was in the second tanks, in armoured cars, mabout
