Experiences of RTR Officer during WW2,
By A Customer
This review is from: Leakey's Luck: A Tank Commander with Nine Lives (Hardcover)
This is the story of the experiences of a young man from Kenya who joins the Royal Tank Regiment as a Regular Officer in the days before the Second World War. He personally experienced the development of British armoured warfare through the first campaigns in North Africa and ending with him commanding a Regiment at the age of twenty seven in Germany. Always at the sharp end he displayed a reckless dash and daring with such numerous narrow escapes as to stretch credulity. Truth is often stranger than fiction and this is the story of a very brave man. Hard to put down.
