Synopsis: An intensely moving and personal story by Stanley Swift, one of Field Marshall Montgomery's famous Desert Rats, recounting battles fought in a variety of landscapes, including the African desert. Provides a moving and authentic account of his march through Normandy, Belgium, Holland, and finally Berlin, in 1945.
The Seventh Armoured Division, also known as the Desert Rats, began in the deserts of North Africa. The dividion was a fighting regiment, fueled by its success and untouched by its early misfortune. Under the command of Field Marshal Montgomery, the division successfully marched through Normandy starting in 1944 and then on to Belgium, Holland, andfinally to Berlin in 1945.
After the war, Stanley Swift rarely spoke of his experiences. Years later, he was persuaded to record his memories. As he spoke into a recorder, it became apparent he had a unique story to tell. This is his story - one you will not easily forget.
About the Author: Stanley Swift was born in Nottingham, England, and at the age of 18 moved with his family to Burton Joyce, a village six miles distant.
He enlisted as a private in the Royal Horse Artillery in the British army in early 1940. He fought in many countries from North Africa through Italy and from the beaches of Normandy, France, through Belgium and Holland to Berlin, Germany. He died in April 1996 at the age of 81.
