Yeomen of England were called to bring their own horses to form England's first Home Guard when a dictator assembled his army across the Channel in 1794. They went on to become one of the most famous mounted regiments of the British Army. During the First World War they served on the frontline in the battles of Ypres, Neuve Chapelle and Artois. In the Second World War they found fame as one of the great tank regiments to be found on the frontline during the Normandy Landings, Battle of the Bulge and the Rhine Crossings

Read Ken’s books many years ago, visited St Aignan de Cramesnil many times, and one occasion met Ken . I reckon "Tank" is one of the best books to come out of Normandy. I have found no better description of life in a tank. 1 ответ 0 ретвитов 2 отметки Нравится.

Read Ken’s books many years ago, visited St Aignan de Cramesnil many times, and one occasion met Ken, and a group of Northamptonshire Yeomanry veterans. Donated various items I found in and around the village to the Northamptonshire Yeomanry collection in Abington Park Museum. 0 ответов 0 ретвитов 4 отметки Нравится.

Explores the total experience of battle with unforgettable intensity: the fear and incomprehension; the boredom and exaggerated importance of mundane detail; the fleeting exhilaration and lasting grief. It tells the story of a crew of very ordinary young lads who find themselves rolling into an epic armoured action - the Night March of the lst Northamptonshire Yeomanry on 7/8 August 1944 - which penetrated what was possibly the strongest defence line set up by the Germans in World War II. But Ken Tout's book is much more than a record of a remarkable military exercise

There are some books that just stop you in your tracks. This is most certainly one of them. For anyone with an interest in tank warfare, this is a marvellous read. For any Tank or Armoured Corps soldiers, this should be a compulsory read.
Never have I felt a stronger bond or connection with an author. As an Armoured Corps soldier, I feel as though Mr Tout is talking directly to me. He uses a universal soldiers language and I'm yet to meet another Tank or Cavalry soldier who's read the book and could disagree with it being anything less than remarkable.

I felt as though I was there in the turret with him, the excitement and fear as real as can be. And I also felt part of his immense sadness moments later that came when he had to check his mates dead bodies and mourn their loss.

Ken Touts book is truly a wonder and I'm immensely grateful that he wrote it.
Do yourself a favour and don't just read this book, savour it. The emotions, the honesty, the action and the humour make it something very, very special.
Thundershaper
Great first person story from a tanker.
greed style
Excellent book, well written.
Vetalol
This is Ken Tout's fictionalized account of his fighting in Normandy. He makes no bones about it as he had forgotten various details. But its a visceral account of what it is like to fight in a Sherman in WWII. For he real personal account read "Tanks Advance!", much of the same story but with more detailed historical notes.
Westened
This is an excellent, acessible account by a British tanker. Tout evokes not only the physical realities of life & combat with his tank & crew, but also opens a window into his fatigue, confusion, fear, and boredom.
Sobering, gripping stuff, and descriptions vivid enough that, travelling in Normandy a year after reading the book, we took a detour to St. Aignan - and locations from the book fell into place like the tumblers of a lock.
fetish
This is one of the most engrosing books I have ever read. From the first page you are transported into the tank with the author and experience this part of Operation Totalise almost as though you are there. It is gripping, well written and absorbing. Do yourself a favour and read this book.
