Ordinary Heroes - The extraordinary story of 106 Coy RE
Ordinary Heroes - The extraordinary story of 106 Coy RE
Price: 2.05

4.0 out of 5 stars Gripping, Interesting, Moving and definitely not ordinary. Excellent read!, 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Excellent detailed read of both the overall company and some of it's individual engineers. Found the book very useful as a research tool for the Royal Engineers during the period 1938-1945 and unlike most books on the subject that finish with 1945, it was good to know what happened to some of the engineers long after WW2 ended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good detaiied read, 23 Jun 2014

red a number of books on the same subject whilst researching, Found this book to be well written with new detailed facts that I had previously not known. I would recommend this book for a first read and an introduction on the British beaches especially if the reader was planning a visit. Having visited all three beaches prior to reading this book, having red it, it answered a number of questions I had regarding troop movements off the beach on D-Day

Excellent and well balanced read not one sided in the relationship between the allied Commanders and brought out truths and dispelled some of the myths of the war in Europe. I would read other books by the same author
