One Man's War by Ron Davies
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


A veteran of D-Day, Ron Davies joined the TA before war began and was called up as a tank gunner or 'Bombardier' with the Essex Yeomanry, but D-Day was his first experience of action. This book follows the training and build-up to D-Day, covers the invasion minute-by-minute, and carries on through the Allied Push through France, Belgium and Holland. Ron's story continues with the regiment's heartbreaking round of duty at Belsen and following that their continuation to the Baltic Coast. After VE day, Ron and his regiment were engaged in 'mopping up' groups of SS fanatics who fought to the death. Ron Davies died in 2003 and this book has been tied together by his son, William, who edited the diaries and has included letters, documents and photographs. This is the gripping story of 'every soldier', told in his own words.
