They took part in Operations Epsom and Goodwood, two of Montgomery's more controversial battles, as well as the successful Operation Bluecoat, the 'great swan' across Northern France, and the invasion of Germany.

The 11th Armored Division, famous for its Black Bull insignia, was widely recognized as being among the best armored divisions in northwest Europe during the Second World War. This book tells the story of the Division in the words of the soldiers who fought with it: of its part in the three ferocious battles in Normandy–Operations EPSOM, GOODWOOD and BLUECOAT, the great ‘Swan’ to Amiens, the taking of Antwerp; right flanking for MARKET GARDEN, back-up in the Ardennes and the final slog into Germany across well-defended river barriers, to the liberation of Belsen, Lübeck and the Danish frontier. The Division suffered 10,000 casualties, with almost 2,000 lost in action, and so this is also a story of courage and the hardships of a winter campaign, of being wounded, comradeship and fighting fear. Contributions are included from twelve of the regiments who proudly wore the sign of the Black Bull. Memories from troop commanders and riflemen, bombardiers and signalmen, tank crews, troop leaders and from the dashing GOC are brought together to reveal what life was like at the sharp end. The Black Bull is liberally illustrated with contemporary photographs showing the Division in action. It will appeal not only to those who still have memories of the battles and to those who fought in the Second World War, but also to readers interested in the day-to-day actions and thoughts of soldiers in the front line for almost a year.
  • Sometimes you buy a book for the history, sometimes due to expectations...this book delivers on both parts. I wanted to know more about the 11th Armoured Division for Flames of War, and this book sheds light on their path from Normandy to the Baltic. Others have complained about there not being an index or maps to follow. Crack the book, and a European Atlas and start the adventure. I haven't finished reading it yet, but I haven't been disappointed with what I have read so far. Having spent twenty plus years in the military, I have been to a lot of the cities and towns that he mentions in the book...talk about adding to the enjoyment!! To me, in my humble opinion, you could read a much worse tome on British Armour.

  • This is an average book. Which is a bit disappointing for a US reader since we don't have the wealth of books available on UK formations in the war like we do US units. Could have been better but it's a good overall resource book.

  • great

  • This is an excellent account of the 11th Br. Armoured Division during WW2. While I found the subject matter in excellent form I did find some the text "choppy" it went from history to personal accounts int he middle of the texts. I would have like the complete thought completed before adding personel accounts of the battles.

    I would have like to have seen more back around information on the key players.....Otherwise this is a an intresting book covering the British Armour battles in North West Europe.

  • The British 11th Armored Division served in most of the major campains and battles fought by the British forces in the ETO, from shortly after D-Day until the final victory against Germany. The Black Bull is the story of the units experiences along the way. Patrick Delaforce who is a veteran of the 11th, recounts the chronology using un-edited first hand accounts of the soldiers who fought with the division, and historical narrative. The reader gets to experience the bloodyingof the division in the battles in the hedgerows and watch as the unit gains confidence from experience in battle as it moves across France, Belgium, the Netherlands and into Germany, liberating Bergen-Belsen and finally ending their 11 months of combat in Lubeck on the Baltic a few days before the final surrender. The first hand accounts are skillfully placed within the narrative at key points and make The Black Bull a compelling and gripping read.
