Its anonymous author landed in France in the autumn of 1939 with the British Expeditionary Force, as a young artillery officer. The following June he left the beaches of Dunkirk in a paddle steamer with his battered but defiant comrades in arms. His story of everything that happened in between in the countryside of France is told with humour a nd humanity. The book first appeared a few months after Dunkirk, and was an instant bestseller. Read again three decades later 'Gun Buster's' narrative is just as compelling - a fascinating story of a strange time."
