Military historians agree that amongst the best armoured divisions in north-west Europe during World War II was the British 11th Armoured Division. This work tells the story of the Division in the words of over 100 soldiers who fought with it. It includes eye-witness accounts, from the Normandy Landings to the capture of Amiens, the taking of Antwerp, "Operation Market Garden", action at Ardennes, the final slog into Germany and the horrific discoveries at Belsen Concentration Camp. The book shows what it was really like to be in combat during that extraordinary campaign to liberate Europe 50 years ago. It reveals the thoughts, feelings and experiences of these veterans, who were at the time in their teens and twenties. The Division suffered 10,000 casualties, with almost 2000 lost in action. This is a story of courage and comradeship of ordinary men plunged into an extraordinary situation.
