Product description

Review

One of the most vivid personal memoirs of the Second World War. Few writers have bettered his description of the experiences of front line infantrymen under the stress of battle. --Max Hastings

Lion Rampant is much more than the story of one man's war: it speaks for many, with modesty, eloquence, and a fine blend of objectivity and enthusiasm. It is a story of comradeship, endurance and sheer fighting skill. --Cecil Day-Lewis

Perhaps the best picture - painted in dark colours shot through by the bright light of valour - that has yet been given of war. --Glasgow Herald

About the Author

Robert Woollcombe was born in 1922 and educated at Marlborough College. He enlisted in the 60th Rifles in 1941, and was commissioned into the 6th Battalion, the King's Own Scottish Borderers in 1942, with whom he served in north-west Europe. He served with the 2nd KOSB in India from 1945 to '46. His association with the regiment spanned three generations - his uncle was killed in action with the KOSB in France in 1914, and his grandfather was Colonel of the regiment.
