9780304366408: By Tank Into Normandy (Cassell Military Paperbacks)

A World War II tank commander gives a direct, harrowing, and exciting account of fighting at the invasion front. On June 4, 1944, 20-year old Stuart Hills, fresh from Officer Cadet Training, went to war. Two days later, his tank sunk. Then came the struggles through Normandy in a replacement tank and a constant round of close encounters with the enemy—which swiftly turned Hills into a master of tank warfare. A remarkable story of survival.

About the Author:

Stuart Hills was 20 years old when he joined a tank regiment preparing to spearhead the D-Day landings. His parents and sister were in Hong Kong, prisoners of the Japanese, their fate unknown. One of the few surviving officers in the regiment at the end of the war, he went on to a successful business career.
