Warriors for the Working Day, Paperback / softback Book

Warriors for the Working Day Paperback / softback

Part of the Imperial War Museum Wartime Classics series

Paperback / softback


"Brook was overcome by the most powerful feeling of sheer animal terror.

It was as though his whole body and soul had suddenly rebelled against what he was doing and where he was.

For a fraction of a second he wanted to scream and fly in panic, and only the physical impossibility of getting out of the tank stopped him.

A moment later it passed, and he found himself obeying Donovan's orders automatically." Based on Peter Elstob's own wartime experiences, Warriors for the Working Day follows one tank crew as they proceed from the beaches of Normandy into newly liberated Western Europe, evoking the claustrophobia, heat, and intensity of tank warfare in brilliant detail.

Published to great acclaim in 1960, the classic novel has been translated into several languages.

This repackaged edition includes a contextual introduction by an Imperial War Museums historian.
