Publisher Description

“A superb and well written book, highly recommended as a true account of one man’s war from Pegasus Bridge to the Baltic during WWII.” —The Armourer

Although strictly forbidden to keep diaries, Denis Edwards managed to record his experiences throughout nearly all his time in Europe in 1944–45. He brilliantly conveys what it was like to be facing death, day after day, night after night, with never a bed to sleep in nor a hot meal to go home to. This is warfare in the raw—brutal, yet humorous, immensely tragic, but sadly, all true.

“[An] excellent book . . . chronicles his journey with the 2nd Oxford & Bucks Light Infantry during pre-invasion training, then on to Normandy, the Ardennes, the Rhine Crossing and the advance to the Baltic Sea in 1945.” —The Pegasus Archive



“From my perspective, if you have any interest in the 2nd Bn. Oxfordshire & Buckinghamshire Light Infantry, and their participation in the action at Pegasus Bridge, the battle for Normandy and the Rhine Crossings, you can do no better than to refer to The Devil’s Own Luck.” —Recollections of WWII

“Edwards’ thorough descriptions of his daily activities in Normandy bring his narrative to life, from eating rations to digging trenches to the strain of being under continuous bombardment . . . The Devil’s Own Luck is fast-paced, well-written, and holds the reader’s attention.” —Colour Sergeant Tombstone’s History Pages
