Outside Caen, the Americans have broken through the German defences. Six stalemated British divisions redep;oy to join the attack. In order to show the true nature of combat, the author has related authentic incidents played out by participants who have remained fictitious to protect the memory of the living and the dead. Ken Macksey weaves a terrific story using all his experience and the result, part fact, part fiction is a unique and brilliant insight into what really happens in the life and death of warfare. Book in very good condition with little sign of use. Dust jacket very good and unclipped. Very minor edge wear and some light spotting to text block edges.
