Landing on the Normandy beaches early in the morning of 6th June 1944 demanded iron resolution and stalwart courage. Christopher Jary uses the stories and testimonies of the brave men of the Hampshires, Dorsets and Devons to offer a more personal and emotive look at the events of D-Day and to illustrate their courage and their sacrifice.
The book is available from the Keep Military Museum for £18, or available via the online shop
Extremely well researched with a wealth of information and so well-paced that the story develops an energy ofits own as it progresses. It is a joy to read. Denis Bounsall DCM, who landed at 0730 on D-Day with the 1st Battalion, Dorset Regiment.
