ordinary infantry battalions like the 1st Battalion The Royal Norfolk Regiment stayed in North West Europe until VE Day 8th May '45, so it gives a better understanding of life in an infantry battalion of the time.

Also, where as Airborne troops are only used for a limited time after the initial 6th June '44 landings, ordinary infantry battalions like the 1st Battalion The Royal Norfolk Regiment stayed in North West Europe until VE Day 8th May '45, so it gives a better understanding of life in an infantry battalion of the time. I know the author well and a story about my grandfather is included in the book. Its a wonderful book that fills you with gratitude and respect.

John Lincoln joined the 1st Battalion, the Royal Norfolk Regiment, in 1944, and served as a Rifle Company officer until wounded at Kervenheim in March 1945. He was awarded the Military Cross at the end of the war 'in recognition of gallant and distinguished service in North West Europe'. Just hours before setting off on a walk across Normandy following the progress of the 1st Norfolks - who included my wife's uncle - I stumbled upon this gem of a book in paperback form.

Here is the story of the part played in the final eleven months of the Second World War in Europe by the 'Poor Bloody Infantry', told in their own words. Vivid eyewitness testimony recalls the experiences of the footsoldiers at theFront - from the assault on Normandy, spear-heading that great invasion, to resisting the enemy at Caen and blunting the Panzer counter-attack in the Bocage. Here, too, are the bitter battles in Holland, holding the Maas river during the coldest winder in living memory, and finally on into Germany at Bremen. Vividly told accounts tell tales of courage and fear. Of how soldiers faced up to the enemy under fire, sharing danger and surviving the savage conditions and of the pride in belonging to a famous and historic regiment - the Royal Norfolks. This is the story of the war the way it really was - told by the men who were there.
