Unlike most war memoirs this account portrays the army's smallest fighting units - the four sections of squaddies that comprise a platoon. They scramble from hole to hole, hedge to hedge, house to house, never knowing their role in the top brass's grand strategy . They are constantly tired, hungary and terrified, and often fewer in numbers at the end of each day. The DW shows light signs of shelf wear and the text block is lightly spotted. View more info
