After days of hard fighting, they were worn and frayed, no longer so eager to test themselves in battle. Their expressions were grim and hard. The coming battle was not going to be easy. The Soviets fought tenaciously to hold what they'd taken. It wouldn't matter though. C Squadron would live up to the regimental motto: "Death or Glory," and today it would be the enemy that would die and C Squadron that would reach for glory.
With its usual professionalism, the British Army had prepared for war. Now, as the Soviet Army flooded across the border in West Germany, it was ready and waiting. Scorpion and Scimitar light tanks skirmished with the Soviet forward detachments as the Chieftain armoured regiments waited. The infantry held the towns and woods, forcing the enemy into killing zones. If anything broke through, the airmobile troops in their Lynx helicopters would hold them. The British Army is ready.
