In 1944, having distinguished itself in the North Africa campaign, Rifleman Bowlby's battalion of Greenjackets was sent to Italy. But instead of being used in the specialised role for which it had been trained, most of the battalion's vehicles were taken away on arrival, and the riflemen were told that they were to be used as ordinary infantry. Stripped of its hard core of regulars, the battalion suffered one disastrous defeat after another until its hard-won reputation fell in tatters. 'Quite extraordinary realism in this worm's eye view… The sweating, slogging, frightened infantryman in conditions of extreme stress and horror. It is a book to bring a shiver to the most grizzled veteran.' Sunday Times
