I'm looking forward to this book, but I thought it wasn't out yet...in either case I'll get it soon enough, thanks for the review.

You're welcome. I hope that this books sells well in the hard-cover edition, to show that there is a market for this kind of thing.

All the best

Finally read the entire book, took me a day. Was a good book, I especially liked his discription of how cavalry really fought, not on horses but dismounted like regular infantry. It was also interesting to see how quickly they were able to move, sometimes even ahead of the tank troops, how important artillery was, AT and regimental 76mm guns. Also found it interesting the announcement made before they entered Germany, they could do what they wanted in Germany, yet he says many did not rape, pillage, murder, etc. Many of his regiment hardly even drank! An excellent addition to literature about the war, well worth the read.
