From the Normandy Beaches to Bremen with the 3rd Division. Illustrated with B&W photographs and maps. Monty’s Iron Sides fought in the tough battle to take Caen, in Operation ‘Goodwood’ at Troarn and Operation ‘Bluecoat’ to take Vire. They helped force a crossing of the Escaut canal and participated in Operation ‘Aintree’ to free the Dutch towns of Overloon and Venraij. Operation ‘Heather’ saw them drive through the Siegfried Line, before finally ‘cracking around’ in northern Germany in the hard fighting that ultimately led to VE-Day. The Iron Sides contribution to victory in Europe was immense and won for them two Victoria Crosses, but the price in lives was high. The division suffered 15,000 casualties including 2,586 killed in action.
