History Hit,

WW2 Tank Commander – Captain David Render

June 06, 2016

Captain David Render was a nineteen-year-old second lieutenant fresh from Sandhurst when he was sent to France to join a veteran armoured unit that had already spent years fighting with the Desert Rats in North Africa. Joining the Sherwood Rangers Yeomanry five days after the D-Day landings, the combat-hardened men he was sent to command did not expect him to last long. A book recounting David’s experiences is published later this month, pre-order now: Tank Action: An Armoured Troop Commander’s War 1944-45
