By Graham A. Thomas
During the Allied advance across northwest Europe in 1944, the opening up of the key port of Antwerp was a pivotal event, yet it has been neglected in histories of the conflict. The battles in Normandy and on the German frontier have been studied often and in detail, while the fight for the Scheldt estuary, Walcheren and Antwerp itself has been treated as a sideshow.
Graham Thomas's timely and graphic account underlines the importance of this aspect of the Allied campaign and offers a fascinating insight into a complex combined-arms operation late in the Second World War.
Using operational reports and vivid first-hand eyewitness testimony, he takes the reader alongside 21 Army Group as it cleared the Channel ports of Calais, Boulogne and Dunkirk, then moved on to attack the Scheldt and the island stronghold of Walcheren.
Overcoming entrenched German resistance there was essential to the whole operation, and it is the climax of his absorbing narrative.
There is not much information about this neglected but important battle.
Mr G A Thomas as written a well researched book, which will fill in many gaps in our knowledge of the final battles at the end of World War Two. I highly recommend this book
This book was a gift for my father who is very interested in the subject. It arrived within days in perfect condition. I was hoping for a few more photos but I can't fault the meticulous research that has gone into it.
