Book 3 in the series continues Sergeant Mahoney’s battle liberating Nazi occupied France in 1944. The Bloody Bush refers to hedgerows, wall-like vegetation very common in the area as it created numerous obstacles from everything from reconnaissance to impeding tank progress. There’s a shitload of endless hedgerows chapter after chapter.

Often referred to as a trash genius Len Levison in these instalments of the Sergeant series writes under the pseudonym.of Gordon Davis. I think trash is totally inappropriate! however genius is spot on! It's now over 40 years since I read the Sergeant series for the first time & I'm glad to say the intervening years have not taken the love I have for this series of books nor the central character Sergeant Clarence J.

This series just keeps getting better - the writing, the action and the characters. I love how real historical battles are presented through the eyes of the fictional characters. In this entry Mahoney and Cranepool find themselves in the middle of the battle of the Hedgerows in an effort to retake the French town of Saint Lo. The fighting is fast, ugly and brutal as they deal with German panzers, hand-to-hand bayonets, and being bombed by their own air support.
