At Close Range (Audiobook)

Life and Death in an Artillery Regiment, 1939-45

Peter Hart

A British Band of Brothers: a thrilling account of the Second World War, told through the eyes of a regiment who fought at battles from Tobruk to the D-Day Landings

The best way to understand what it was like to fight in the Second World War is to see it through the eyes of the soldiers who fought it. The South Notts Hussars fought at almost every major battle of the Second World War, from the Siege of Tobruk to the Battle of El Alamein and the D-Day Landings.

Here, Peter Hart draws on detailed interviews conducted with members of the regiment, to provide both a comprehensive account of the conflict and reconstruct its most thrilling moments in the words of the men who experienced it.

This is military history at its best: outlining the path from despair to victory, and allowing us to share in soldiers' hopes and fears; the deafening explosions of the shells, the scream of the diving Stukas and the wounded; the pleasures of good comrades and the devastating despair at lost friends.

Reviews for At Close Range

'

Praise for Peter Hart's previous books:
A superb account of the tactics that finally brought victory on the Western Front. The Last Battle pays just tribute to the allied military achievement of 1918, too often forgotten in our preoccupation with earlier horrors.

'

Max Hastings 

'Thought provoking, erudite, yet eminently readable and entertaining: Peter Hart is a historian and author at the peak of his powers'

Richard van Emden 

'Exquisite ... Hart lets theses gunners speak.'

Gerard de Groot the Times

'Memory can play false, of course, but these recollections, admirably curated, have authenticity.'
