Patrick Delaforce served with 11th Armoured Division during the advance through NW Europe. After a career in the wine trade he became a professional writer. Among his books in print with Pen and Sword are Churchill's Desert Rats in North Africa, Burma, Sicily and Italy, Wellington Le Beau and Monty's Marauders.
Blooded at Alamein – where they suffered over 2000 casualties – they pursued the Afrika Korps via Tripoli and Tunis fighting fierce battles along the way. They lost 1,500 men helping to liberate Sicily. Back to the UK for the second front, the Highlanders battled their way through Normandy bocage, the break-out to the Seine, triumphal re-occupation of St Valéry, and were the first troops to cross the Rhine, fighting on to Bremen and Bremerhaven.
Well the subtitle pretty much sums it up, this is a history of the 51st Highland Division from 1939 to 1945. There are various Scottish Divisions, but the most famous it undoubtedly the 51st with their distinctive HD logo which earned them the nick name Highway Decorators due to it's frequency of application during various advances. This is a theme through the book as the text follows the rebuilding of the division and then its subsequent deployments, firstly to North Africa, then Sicily before makings its way to Germany by way of France, Holland and Belgium. After their success during the battle of El Alamein, they became a favourite of Montgomery.
