By Jock Watt

Robert "Jock" Watt served in Royal Tank Corps (RTC), soon to be renamed the Royal Tank Regiment (RTR) and on completion of his training he was posted to the regiment's third battalion (3 RTR), rapidly rising through the ranks to RSM and later being commissioned as an officer. 

Watt saw action in France, Greece, the Western Desert and Europe. This book details, in candid honesty, Jocks gruelling experiences and amazing series of adventures through the war, from two narrow escapes from the enemy's clutches, stealing a small motor boat and making his own way to safety, to taking part in some of the toughest battles of the Desert War, including the most famous of them all, El Alamein

Somehow, Jock survived them all and his accounts of the Desert War, as seen from the turret of his tank, has been hailed as one of the finest ever put on record.

The result is a one of a kind insight into the life of a World War II 'tankie'
