David Render is one of the last surviving Second World War tank troop commanders to have participated in the D-Day landing and the entirety of the subsequent fighting in the Allies campaign to liberate Europe in 1944 and 1945. With the help of Stuart Tootal, who served twenty years as a soldier, David's fascinating story has been told in Tank Action. The book, which is refreshingly written from a younger person's perspective, spans every major episode of the last year of World War II in Western Europe - from the invasion of Normandy to the fall of Germany.

This remarkable story of survival and comradeship would appeal to biography lovers everywhere.
