Armoured Guardsmen: A War Diary from Normandy to the Rhine (Military History) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

  • A stirring story of frontline action with the tank troops of the Coldstream Guards as they fight their way through northwest Europe during the final year of World War II
  • Vivid and perceptive narrative captures the spirit of comradeship, the joy of success, the bitterness of loss, and the dangerous thrill of combat

    Shortly after D-Day, Bob Boscawen, fresh from Cambridge and Sandhurst, found himself in Normandy with his Coldstream Guards tank unit. During the months that followed, he kept a diary recording the Guards Armoured Division's almost constant activity in France, Belgium, Holland, and Germany--until, having already had three tanks shot from under him, he suffered severe burns and had to be evacuated, one of only two survivors of his crew.
