From the evacuation of Tobruk in 1940 to the final dash to Hamburg in 1945, the 5th Royal Tank Regiment were at the front line in both Europe and beyond during the Second World War. Wherever they went, the notoriety of the 'Filthy Fifth' grew. Author and journalist Mark Urban will explore how the regiment's great advances were every bit the equal of the more recognised feats of the German Panzer divisions.
