Description
(Winner of a 2003 Distinguished Book Award from Britain's Society for Military History ) Just 20 years old and fresh from a public school background and officer cadet training, Stuart Hills piloted his Sherman DD tank onto an LCT landing boat on the morning of Sunday, June 4, 1944. Two days later, during the D-Day invasion at Normandy, his tank had sunk, and he and his crew were paddling ashore in a rubber dinghy with just the clothes they stood in. In this gripping story of survival in the midst of carnage and destruction, Hills describes his odyssey through the French countryside in a replacement tank, constantly engaging the enemy at close quarters, and how it led to his swift mastering of the art of tank warfare.
