From the cover: “This book tells what happened, as it happened, to a Flail Tank Regiment troop from the landings on the Normandy beaches to the fight across Europe into the heart of Germany. It is not all mud, blood and battlefield horrors but a factual account of war as it was in an armour plated machine with a flailing speed of one and a half miles an hour. Flail tanks headed the set piece attacks, clearing a path through the enemy minefields so troops could advance. Here are the technical details of how this was done and how civilians turned soldiers managed to cope with a constant game of Russian roulette in striking their blow for freedom.”
