The Boys' Crusade is a superbly graphic account of the chaos and errors, terror and misery American ground troops in Europe faced in the Second World War. It presents a series of episodes from the arrival of American troops in Britain to their discovery of the concentration camps in early 1945. The experiences of these often very young soldiers was not always unpleasant - they were popular with British women - but after D-Day, it usually was. In its unvarnished truth-telling, this book is a brilliant antidote to military romanticism of every sort. There is light shelf ware to the DJ and the top of the text block is tanned.
