A Royal Engineer at War 1940-1946 is a British soldier's account of his life, both private and military, while serving with the Corps of Royal Engineers between 1940 and 1946. Based on the diaries of Driver First Class Robert "Robb" Jones, the reader follows this Royal Engineer across the deserts of North Africa and the Middle East, endures the bombing of Tripoli Harbour, and accompanies him on both the invasion of Sicily and the landings on the Normandy beaches. The reader follows the advance up through Belgium and Holland and is given a first-hand account of the battle that became known as the Rhine Crossing. The narrative is also interspersed throughout with some relevant military events, which occurred during the same period. As with all such stories, the reader is given access to the subject's innermost thoughts, revealing his fears, anxieties, frustrations and emotions; the latter involving the affections of a couple of pretty young ladies. In addition to being based on the written thoughts, comments and diary entries of Robb Jones, the book is illustrated with photographs taken by him during his six years as a Royal Engineer.
