I am currently watching the DVD of the TV series: “Fortunes of War”, based on Olivia Manning’s novel. It led me to wonder whatever happened to the novel I used to own depicting the fortunes of a New Zealand artillery battery during the Greek and Cretan campaigns of The Second World War. I have no idea what the book was called or the author, but if it rings a bell with anyone, please let me know.
in return, I rcommend the following novels, which deal with the preparation for, and subsequent battles of Normandy in 1944.
Warriors for the Working Day, Peter Elstob, 1960
Death of a Regiment, John Foley, 1959
and reverting to the 1940 campaign in France, Tramp in Armour, by Colin Forbes.
