Many accounts have been written of the Allied invasion of Europe in 1944, usually by high-ranking officers. Just a Walk in the Sun tells the story of an infantry soldier at the sharp end of the invasion, on the front line with the 1st Herefordshire Regiment pushing through France, Belgium, Holland and Germany: fighting to the very end of the second world war.
For ten months between July 1944 and May 1945 -- from D-day to VE day and beyond -- Bob Price fought with the 1st Herefordshire Regiment as they battled from their landing in Arromanches to their eventual capture of the Flensburg Goverment.
With a foreword by Dr Carl Chinn MBE, Just a Walk in the Sun is a fascinating story of an ordinary man thrust into extraordinary circumstances.
