When Montgomery took command prior to D-Day he gathered around him
commanders and formations he knew and trusted. Not surprisingly 7th Armoured
Division was one of these and they were deployed from Italy to England. In this
fine account the author who fought alongside the Desert Rats describes the
Division’s battles from the beaches, the breakout battles (Goodwood and
Bluecoat), the liberation of Northern France and Belgium. After taking Ghent
there were the long months fighting in the Peel country of the Netherlands
before Operation Blackcock, the Rhine Crossing and the final advance into
Germany, the capture of Hamburg and the Allies’ triumphant entry into Berlin. No
reader of this magnificent history, with its many personal accounts will
question why the Desert Rats wore – and still wear – their Jerboa insignia with
such pride.
