The men who made the numbers up - the other ranks. Rifleman Bowlby's battalion had been renowned throughout the Eight Army. But after the North Africa campaign was over, it had come near to mutiny. Stripped of its hard core of regulars, the battalion was sent to Italy and used as heavy infantry instead of the specialized role for which it had been trained. It lost its first battle; and its second. A reputation that had taken three years to build, fell to bits in a few weeks. The battalion's struggle to retain that reputation took place on the jagged teeth of the Gothic Line.Visit my eCRATER Store for other great books and save on shipping!
