American Knights by William Failmezger

American Knights by William Failmezger

I received a review copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley.

American Knights is the very personal story of the men of a battalion of tank destroyers, and follows them in their dangerous journeys through the battlefields of World War 2. When reading the book, I felt like I was there in the midst of the battle, with an effective combination of narrative interwoven with letters to and from the front.

I guess the story of the tank destroyers lack some of the glamour of some of the bigger tales in the war, but the battlefield is a big enough place to embrace stories from a wide range of sources. I learned a lot more about what it was like to be a combatant in the tank war.

An excellent read, and an interesting addition to library of literature about the second world war.

4 stars.
