The story of Britain’s Tank Regiment is one of struggle, triumph and achievement.
During the Second World War, 1 RTR saw action in the North African desert, in Italy and in North Western Europe, forming the spearhead of 7th Armoured division in the campaigns of 1944 and 1945. Following service with the British Expeditionary force in France in 1940 and later in North Africa, 2RTR fought a heroic rearguard action in Burma in 1942. During 1944 and 1945, 2RTR took part in the Italian campaign before ending the war in Austria.
Patrick Delaforce has interviewed some forty veteran officers and men of both battalions to tell the inspiring story of Britain’s two premier tank battalions at War. His narrative is interwoven with extensive interviews with these veterans.

Patrick Delaforce fought as a troop leader in Normandy and also served in Germany and Holland during the Second World War. He was awarded the Bronze Cross of Orange-Nassau and was twice mentioned in despatches. After the war he worked as a Port wine shipper and in advertising before becoming a professional writer. He is the author of many Military History books as well as a number of travel books and biographies.
