A key component of Second Army, the famous West Country Division captured Mount Picon, forced the crossing of the Seine, were the first British troops to fight in Germany, and turned the tide in the Reichswald enabling the Allies to close with the Rhine. As part of Horrocks' 30 Corps, the division also took part in the headlong rush to Nijmegen in GARDEN. Locally printed, probably on a commissioned press, this humble pamphlet is nevertheless a moving tribute to one of the most famous British fighting units of WWII. A RARE SURVIVAL AND CONSIDERABLY MORE ELUSIVE THAN ITS SECOND ARMY COUNTERPART.
