Excellent account of tank warfare in WW2,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Tank War: The Men, the Machines and the Long Road to Victory (Hardcover)
Mark urban writes consistently interesting and human accounts of what it's like to be a soldier, whether it be in the Peninsular War or as in this book, WW2. He uses his well established method of taking several soldiers of varying rank and following them through the various campaigns to tell a detailed and human story. In this case it is 5th RTR, a unit close to my own family and indeed one of the soldiers Mark follows through the war is my uncle. If you want to feel the claustrophobia of being in a tank during some of the fiercest fighting of the war this book is for you, I for one shall never view what my uncle and others went through in the same light again.
