Brothers In Arms: One Legendary Tank Regiment's Bloody War From D-Day to V-E Day
- Air, Ground, & Naval Warfare, American History, World War II
Making tracks with the Sherwood Rangers
In the annals of World War II, certain groups of soldiers stand out, and among the most notable were the Sherwood Rangers. After winning acclaim in the North African campaign, this extraordinary tank unit spearheaded one of the D-Day landings in Normandy on June 6, 1944, led the way across France, were the first British troops to cross into Germany, and contributed mightily to Germany’s surrender in May 1945.
Inspired by Stephen Ambrose’s Band of Brothers, acclaimed historian James Holland expertly profiles this legendary group of British soldiers. Informed by never-before-seen documents, letters, photographs, and other artifacts from Sherwood Rangers’ families, Holland offers a uniquely intimate portrait of the war at ground level.
