From the cover: “This is the story of the final eleven months of the Second World War in Europe in the life of the Poor Bloody Infantry, told in their own words. This book recalls the experiences of the foot-soldiers at the Front — from the assault on Normandy, spear-heading that great invasion, to resisting the enemy at Caen, blunting the Panzer counter-attack in the Bocage, bitter battles in Holland, holding the Maas river during the coldest winter in living memory, and finally on to Germany at Bremen.
Vividly told accounts tell tales of courage and fear, of how they faced up to the enemy under fire, of sharing danger, the survival of savage conditions, and of the pride of belonging to a famous and historic regiment.
Published fifty years after the end of the war, this is the story of the war the way it really was — told by the men who were there.”
