From the bestselling author of Normandy '44 and Sicily '43, a brilliant new history of the last days of the war'Seldom is war so vividly described...An assault on the senses...Painful to read, impossible to put down' Gerard DeGroot, The Times'Epic and moving...Holland brings this cramped universe vividly to life' Patrick Bishop, Daily Telegraph______It took a certain type of courage to serve in a tank in the Second World War.

Encased in steel, surrounded by highly explosive shells, a big and slow-moving target, every crew member was utterly vulnerable to enemy attack from all sides.

Living - and dying - in a tank was a brutal way to fight a war. The Sherwood Rangers were one of the great tank regiments.

They had learned their trade the hard way, in the burning deserts of North Africa.

From D-Day onwards, they were in the thick of the action til the war's end.

They and their Sherman tanks covered thousands of miles and endured some of the fiercest fighting in Western Europe.

Their engagements stretch from the Normandy beaches to the bridges at Eindhoven.

They were the first British unit into Germany, grinding across the Siegfried Line and on into the Nazi heartland. Through compelling eye-witness testimony and James Holland's expert analysis, Brothers In Arms brings to vivid life the final bloody scramble across Europe and gives the most powerful account to date of what it was really like to fight in the dying days of World War Two.
