‘One of the great Second World War memoirs … will be read as long as that war is remembered’ John Keegan

‘Extraordinary realism’ SUNDAY TIMES

‘A touch of the Somme and more than a hint of Wilfred Owen’ TLS

A classic of WWII, this is the vivid memoir of Private Bowlby, who came through the North Africa campaign only to have to battle in bitter fighting against a stubborn and skilled German defence in Italy. It is a truly authentic account of what it was like to fight your way through one of the most gruelling and dangerous campaigns of the Second World War, where so often the hunters became the hunted.

A superb first-hand account of the the second world war.
