Daily Telegraph – A superb recollection of what exactly infantry combat on the Western Front in World War II was really like. Sixty years ago W F Deedes led his British infantry company across Europe. Last month, aged 92, he retraced his steps, reviving memories and recalling old friends. This is his story, told for the first time. Lord Deedes later went on to become the Editor of the Daily Telegraph from 1974-1986 and continues to write for it.
