  Guards Armoured Division, March of the Guards Armoured Division. Leading the 8th Armored Division in battle was the peak of my career, and no one could ask for a more gratifying experience. My memories of that period are very satisfying ones and bring to me a sense of achievement which only success in an important mission can give. This story is not a complete one. It can never be complete.

Buy #34 w/Famous Divisions - Guards Armoured Division (Special Edition) - World at War from Decision Games - part of our ' War Games - War Game Magazines collection. Another great book by Adam Makos (the best story-teller of the last few years). The story follows the young men from both American and German armored units across the European battlefields, culminating in the battle of Cologne where their stories meet. Makos introduces each character nicely into the story. and each one brings richness to the story/5().

  Behind them the tanks of the Guards Armored Division’s 5 th Armored Brigade entered the battle. Its 1 st Armored Coldstream Guards and 2 nd Armored Irish Guards regiments bypassed Cagny via a detour through le Mesnil-Frémentel on their way to Vimont. But by doing so, they blocked the forward elements of the 7 th Armored Division coming up. Around , the second battalion of the 2nd Battalion Irish Guards of the Guards Armored Division is 2, meters from Cagny when four of its Sherman tanks are destroyed by the 88 mm guns. The entire regiment was stationed until 4 pm, and then he was ordered to bypass the village by overflowing to Emiéville, but he also recorded direct blows.
