More About the Author

Nigel Cawthorne is the author of some eighty books - and a major contributor to at least twenty more. He lives in a flat girlfriends have described as a book-writing factory in Bloomsbury, London's literary area, and writes in the great British Library, which is supposed to be one of the best pick-up joints in London. However, his reputation is such that people will tell you he is more often seen drinking in Soho's famous bohemian watering hole, the French pub - still known to some denizens as the Yorkminster - with a beautiful young woman on his arm.

As the paras and glider troops of the US and British airborne divisions went in on the night of June 5, Allied shipping began massing out in the channel................ As dawn broke on June 6, waves of assault craft hit the Normandy beaches, British, American, Canadian, Polish, and Free French troops began to stream ashore................

Fighting Them on the Beaches
I bought this book following a visit to the D-Day beaches in Normandy. I wanted to know the full story behind those poignant relics and the local cemeteries full of the bodies of young men. It's an incredible story of an operation that was massive in scale and planning, but mostly in human courage. So many men lost their lives but not in vain. The D-Day landings were crucial not only in defeating Hitler but also in so much that went on after the war. Nigel Cawthorne gives the details of the operation in a thorough account, which, though emotionally detached (there are no first hand accounts of the horror of battle), gives you all the information you need to paint your own mental picture.
