The novel is based on events from June 1944, during the Battle of Normandy, to the invasion of Germany in the Spring of 1945. The book describes fighting by the men of a small unit of British tanks during this period, with the focus on one tank crew. The novel is highly realistic, as it is based on Elstob's experience

My all time favourite book about tankers during WWII. Peter Elstob is also one of my favourite authors. A very good read, should be on a school reading list along with Middlebrook's "First Day on the Somme" and "Convoy". 2 people found this helpful.

Warriors for the Working Day' by Peter Elstob (1960). Life and death in a Sherman of a thinly disguised 11th Armd Div. Post D-Day to the end. I'm on page 233 and the lads are defending a bridge near the Ardennes. Pleasingly, the Septics are given a fair judgement over the early defeats and their riposte is eagerly awaited.

We are but warriors for the working-day; Our gayness and our gilt are all besmirch'd With . Peter Elstob; Bastogne: the road block; Ballantine Books, New York, 1968; inside front cover.

We are but warriors for the working-day; Our gayness and our gilt are all besmirch'd With rainy marching in the painful field; There's not a piece of feather in our host- Good argument, I hope, we will not fly- And time hath worn us into slovenry: But, by the mass, our hearts are in the trim. The title appears to imply that while the British are not professionals, they are up to the task of defeating the forces of Nazi Germany. Elstob then volunteered for the Royal Tank Regiment, eventually becoming a tank commander. a b c "Peter Elstob obituary".
