In April of 1945 the port cities of northern Germany became the target of an Allied rivalry that was to prefigure the Cold War. Montgomery's 21st Army Group, made up of British, Canadian and Polish troops, was the Allied force originally designated to capture Bremen, Hamburg and other German cities on the Baltic. Growing American nervousness about Soviet intentions led to pressure from Eisenhower on Montgomery to step up the pace of the British advance. Montgomery knew that a more aggressive advance would cost more casualties for a Commonwealth whose manpower was already drained by six years of war; nevertheless he too was concerned about the Soviet advance from the east. A tense situation developed as Montgomery reluctantly began to launch his offensive while the local German officials tried to find a way to surrender and avoid a needless slaughter in a doomed all-out defense.

Details of the book
Shot at Dawn: Executions in World War One by Authority of the British Army Act

Containing details of all World War I executions carried out under the authority of the British Army Act, this book includes the names, ranks and regiments of those shot by firing squad, together with their offences, trials, execution details and burial places, where known. The text is illustrated with photographs and unit badges to aid the researcher. The authors set out to demonstrate what they consider to be the ineptitude, ignorance and unfairness of the British court martial system at the time, and how frequently condemned men were proved to have been formerly brave soldiers who had simply cracked under the pressure of trench warfare. Contending that they were judicially killed as a lesson to other soldiers in order to discourage acts of gross insubordination, desertion and cowardice, the authors present eye-witness accounts which show how, in many cases, the condemned men went to their deaths with great courage and dignity. Evidence is also provided of instances in which next-of-kin were hoodwinked into believing that their men had died in action - a system of cover-up which, it is claimed, still exists today. Some men, the murderers and rapists, even by today's standards probably deserved their end, but the accounts of others, who were unrepresented - and in some cases in their late teens and early twenties - make harrowing reading.
