This is not just the story seen through senior commanders, but experiences of the Tykes themselves. It gives a revealing insight into the terrifying reality of the battle front, of the surprising reserves of heroism, courage and humor. Bound by their experiences they epitomized that grim determination inherent in the very definition of that word ‘"Tyke"
