Along the way, they’ll unlock wisdom for those of us navigating our own coupledoms, and for those still seeking their perfect match.

Winning acclaim in the North African campaign, the Sherwood Rangers then spearheaded one of the D-Day landings in Normandy on June 6, 1944, led the way across France, were the first British troops to cross into Germany, and contributed mightily to Germany's surrender in May 1945.The American-made Sherman tanks the Rangers fought in were as deadly as the shells they fired; their casualties were horrific, but their ranks immediately refilled. The SRY story from D-day to the end of the war is told here in a very detailed account that is a fitting tribute to all that served with the SRY. The details that are covered are very well delivered and living in Northern Germany and knowing the towns and cities that were destroyed is an eye opener. The only man in history to complete elite training as a Navy SEAL, Army Ranger, and Air Force tactical air controller, he went on to set records in numerous endurance events.

The author of a number of bestselling histories, including Battle of Britain, Dam Busters, Normandy '44 and, most recently, Sicily '43, he has also written nine works of historical fiction, including the Jack Tanner novels. Although from an originally comfortable middle-class background, he harbored deep resentment about his upbringing. Having interviewed veterans, spoken to their families, read their letters, seen their photographs and walked in their paths, Holland has delved into their world and brought their characters to life.And it was such a largely unknown, unappreciated sacrifice, too, a brutal, horrible business; and yet these men somehow, in some way, managed to keep their humanity - enough to notice a first snowdrop, or to lay on a Christmas spectacle for the children of a small Dutch town. The vast bulk of the British Army of World War II consisted of men like Wharton, who had worked in his father’s printing business before the war.
