This is the microhistory of Brian Kay Heyworth and 1st Buckinghamshire Battalion, Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry in 1939 and 1940. Major Heyworth was a lawyer when called up with his territorial battalion, and was commanding when killed in the defense of Hazebrouck in Belgium, a delaying action that held up the German advance for 48 hours to give more time to the Dunkirk evacuation. This book is based on Heyworth's letters to his wife, Betty, news clippings, eyewitness reports, and the regimental diary.
