"There along the left hand side of the road several hundred yards up was a row of what I took to be Tigers, wide, squat and menacing, and as I struggled to bring my sights to bear on the leading one, what appeared to be a spinning ball of cotton wool was coming towards us. I pressed the firing button of the seventeen pounder with a sharp stab of my left foot, we had HE up the spout and no time to change it for shot..." Beyond the Rhine - The sacrificial lamb are the first-hand WWII experiences of a gunner in a Sherman Firefly tank in the Guards Armoured Division in the British Army in Holland in 1945. This account will take you into the mind of a tanker as he and his mates go into battle and during the heat of battle. These "Citizen soldier" young men faced death on a daily basis from both enemy and "friendly" fire living one day to the next in the hope that they would not be next.
