Description

Among many such stories, I found Stuart Hill's reaction to the death of his friend Denis Elmore to be particularly moving.

In the annals of World War II, certain groups of soldiers stand out, and among the most notable were the Sherwood Rangers. James Holland accomplishes a major victory, a rarity, in bringing back to life unnerving tank battles .

Inspired by Stephen Ambrose’s Band of Brothers, historian James Holland profiles this extraordinary group of citizen soldiers.

The winter of '44-'45 saw the NW European theater experience some of the worst, wettest and coldest weather in years. He made it his duty to locate the bodies of Regimental members killed in action and ensure their proper burial and recording of their graves for future relocation. His writing style is crisp and he does as much as he can with interview material and other first hand accounts to put you into the tanks as they advance towards the day's objectives.The SRY being on the offensive most of the time meant the Germans had the advantage firing the first shot, which, whether from an anti-tank Gun, German tank, or from a Panzerfaust held by an infantryman was often fatal to the SRY tank if not always the crew as well. In the fires of war, however, he found a soulmate in John Bethell-Fox, with whom he served in North Africa. Holland puts the case for Allied technological and military skills as a vital factor in turning the war’s tide . The author of a number of bestselling histories, including Battle of Britain, Dam Busters, Normandy '44 and, most recently, Sicily '43, he has also written nine works of historical fiction, including the Jack Tanner novels.
