Comments: A good account of the Recconaissance Corps during World War 2.

This truly was an elite force; the standard reconnaissance battalion carried twice as much firepower as its infantry counterpart. They were everywhere, and always at the spearhead, from Singapore to the Western Desert, Italy, Burma, at Arnhem, and on into Germany. Using personal reminiscences and war diaries, Richard Doherty provides the only narrative of the men Sir Arthur Bryant characterized as “intelligent, enterprising, brave, enduring, and highly skilled.”
