As a narrative of the second world war and the British army’s engagement, Stanley Christopherson’s diaries are unique: it’s unlikely we’ll ever see such a complete chronicle of wartime experiences again.
James Holland’s expert pen has edited the original diary entries written by Stanley, a junior officer at the outset, promoted to commanding officer soon after the D-Day landings. What Stanley Christopherson, DSO, MC, TD, saw, and what he recorded, gives us an insight to a regiment that went to war as amateurs but became one of the most experienced, highly trained and most valued armoured units in the British Army: the Sherwood Rangers Yeomanry. It’s an extraordinary collection of insights.
