The story of a troop in the British Army during World War II as told by the man who led them. In April 1943, newly commissioned John Foley was posted to command Five Troop and their trusty Churchill tanks Avenger, Alert, and Angler–thus beginning his initiation into the Royal Armoured Corps. This book is a history of Five Troop through the author’s own experiences with the British Army. Covering the trials of training, embarkation to France, and battle experience through Normandy, the Netherlands, the Ardennes campaign, and into Germany, Foley’s intimate and detailed account follows the fate of this group of men in the latter stages of World War II. Mailed Fist is brought back into print here in a new edition that features an introduction from curators at the Imperial War Museum, putting the work into historical context and shining a light on this fascinating experience of the World War II.
