The Sherbrooke Fusilier Regiment was a Canadian armoured regiment attached to the 2nd Canadian Armoured Brigade which landed on the beaches of Normandy on D-Day in support of the 3rd Canadian Infantry Division and then fought through France, Belgium, Holland and Germany until VE-Day. As an independent armoured regiment, it was assigned to support various infantry formations. As such, it fought the first major tank battle on European soil when it went up against the panzers and panzergrenadiers of the 12.SS-Panzerdivision (Hitlerjugend) on 7 June 1944, these combat actions are portrayed in Armoured Thunder. In this volume, the author explores the regiment's battles through Antwerp, the Scheldt, the Rhine River and the Hochwald Gap in Germany. One remarkable Sherman tank of the regiment - BOMB - would survive from D-Day to VE-Day.
