Nick is to be congratulated on this latest excellent contribution to the Corps history. Here we carry Paul Croxson's review which will also be published in the next Rose and Laurel due in early 2015.
A separate review by Chris Yates also appears in the spring 2014 edition of Sub Rosa.
Recently published by Matador, We Were Brothers in Arms is an attempt to understand the experience of battle during WW2 through the personal stories of ordinary soldiers.
FICM member Frank Clark has gathered together these amazing stories covering the eleven months of frenzied warfare that followed D Day and combined them into this fascinating volume. The review has been revised recently to include details of charitable benefits from proceeds from book sales together with Frank's website information.
Excellent short, sharp review by PWC of this work which ideally complements the more extensive review of Tapping Hitler's Generals which is appears in our Winter Sub Rosa.
Here PWC reviews a fascinating, if rather sad version of Cockleshell Heroes by Paddy Ashdown - A brilliant little operation.
Good advert for a Christmas read?
