British Liberation Army 1944-45 by Charles Whiting

Book Description

The author is a World War II combat veteran and Britain's most prolific military writer. This book presents the final, terrible stages of the war through the eyes of those who fought it.This latest book by Charles Whiting, the prolific historian of the Second World War, details the final efforts of the British infantry to free Europe from the grip of the German Army. From the drama of D-Day to the grim push into Germany and on to Berlin, the focus is on the men who took the brunt.The contribution of the British forces is sometimes downplayed: it was after all the Russian winter and the Yanks that won the War. Whiting is happy to adjust the perspective a little! Though the best description of this book does in fact come from an American, Paul Fussell, wounded in France leading an infantry section. 'Those who fought in the line, especially if they were wounded, constitute an ingroup separate from those who did not. Praise or blame does not attach. There is an instinctive scepticism about pretension...and the pomp of authority.' Charles Whiting was part of that in-group.
