British Army 1939-1945 by Martin J. Brayley

Book Description

The inportance of the British Army's contribution to World War II - and of WWII in the history of the British Army - is impossible to overstate. This first of three titles covers the introduction of new uniforms and equipment, based on a new tactical doctrine, in the 1930s; the costly lessons of Norway and France, 1940; the grim period when Britain stood alone in the world against Hitler's Germany; the slow build-up to the Second Front, and the army which crossed the Channel on D-Day 1944, and liberated huge areas of Western Europe by spring 1945.
