Military Training in the British Army, 1940-1944
From Dunkirk to D-Day
Routledge – 2000 – 240 pages
Series: Military History and Policy
In this study, the author traces the reasons for the British Army's tactical weakness in Normany to flaws in its training in Britain. The armour suffered from failures of experience. Disagreements between General Montgomery and the War Office exacerbated matters.
Immensely detailed yet comprehensible and logical, Military Training in the British Army is a thought provoking study. It will be of particular interest to military historians who focus on operations and to service professionals.
