Dan Snow's History Hit podcast featured a tank commander from WW2, David Render, and it was a compelling story of men at war.  David's war began a few days after D-Day, where he started losing men before he even hit the beach.   
That was a rough introduction to WW2, and the guy was only nineteen years old.  For all his achievements in the war, he is still a humble team player, recognizing that he didn't win the war, but the small contributions of everyone involved did.   There is a good story about David Render on the Telegraph.
David is in the process of finishing his book, Tank Action: An Armoured Troop Commander's War 1944–45, and it will be available soon on Amazon.
