Synopsis

To the Victor the Spoils by Sean Longden

From the D-Day landings in June 1944 to the final declaration of peace the following year the Allied forces fought a bitter battle to the end against Hitler's Nazi Germany. Sean Longden re-tells the unexpected true story of life among the ranks of Field Marshall Montgomery's 21st Army group and reveals a tale of sex, burglary, rape, pillage and alcohol. Uncovering new material from interviews, documents and personal accounts, Sean Longden recounts what really happened on the road to Berlin. 'A meticulously-researched, utterly absorbing account of the human story behind the battle to crush Hitler's forces.' Yorkshire Post

About the Author

Sean Longden

Sean Londgen is the author of a number of books which overturns the traditional narrative of the Second World War. In Dunkirk, he told the story of the 44,000 that were left behind the beaches as the allies escaped the Nazis; in Hitler's British Slaves, he uncovered the brutal treatment of PoWs in internment camps; To the Victory the Spoils reveals the unexpected story of Montgomerie's boys as they marched from D Day to Berlin. T Force unveils the story of a secret regiment that set up in order to capture Nazi war secrets in the aftermath of the Armistice. He lives in London.
