AbstractHistoryArchive Description

This is the story about the part played by a Reconnaissance Regiment during World War 2. It is a true story because that is the only kind worth telling and because life is infinitely stronger than anything the mind can invent. It is a story of human interest describing the life and times in a Recce unit during a crucial period of the war. All characters and names are fictitious as are some regimental numbers. (Author's note)
