By Mark Forsdike

After landing on D-Day, 1st Battalion, The Suffolk Regiment fought through France, Holland and into Germany as part of the 3rd (British) Infantry Division.

Ever cheerful, the Battalion were opposed by an increasingly ruthless enemy determined to deny the invader their homeland. As the campaign developed, 1 Suffolk acquired an enviable reputation for getting the job done with the minimum of fuss.

Inevitably casualties mounted up and, of the 850 who landed on D-Day, just 178 were still serving on VE-Day; 215 had been killed and 640 wounded. The Battalion's success was due in large measure to fine leadership and all four commanding officers went on to enjoy distinguished careers. But without the stalwart fighting spirit and comradeship of all ranks none of the Battalion's achievements would have been possible.

This fine book draws on the testimonies of officers and men who served in this historic campaign. Recognition of the fighting record of 1 Suffolk is long overdue and the author is to be congratulated for pulling together these inspiring first-hand accounts along with many previously unpublished photographs.
