A classic read, classic understatement by the author of the deeds undertaken. The best bit as any ex forces would know is reading between the lines!! We are for ever indebted in more ways than one. When is the first book coming out on kindle?

A very interesting read about a dispatch rider and his experiences through France, Belgium, Holland and Germany following D-Day. Some of the trials and tribulations that he went through were quite hair raising. These men were so brave and we musn't forget what we owe them. I have learnt a lot more about the battles and day to day life of our soldiers who fought to end the war.

this true life story was related in a very good and understand able way. when reading this story the reader almost felt like he was riding on the motor bike with the dispatch rider. The tales told by this author were at times quite hair raising but also very exciting. Altogether a very good read.

Eye opening as to what it was really like after the invasion, funny in parts, harrowing in others, very readable.

I was a despatch rider during Gulf One, and was surprised to find reading this account of an earlier DR, that not much was different in those days of WW2 to the procedures of my generation! I realised that some things always remain the same. (Weather and traffic hazards for a start!)
I heartily recommend this volume to anybody who was either a DR, or has an interest in motorcycles, to read about conflict from a slightly different angle!
