5.0 out of 5 stars Great writing, incredible memories, 25 Jun. 2007

This review is from: D-Day Commando: From Normandy to the Maas with 48 Royal Marine Commando (Paperback)
It's all too easy to find accounts of the US units on D-Day. Omaha was a bloodbath, that can't be denied, but the Canadian beach, Juno, is an often ignored part of the battle that was equal to Omaha in intensity during the early hours of D-day. This book covers the story of 48 RM Commando, from their formation to the end of the war, including their landing on the eastern end of Juno beach just 100 yards from a German strongpoint. The unit lost all its Troop Commanders in a couple of hours and this account paints a picture of events using personal voices and narrative. The Canadians and 48 Commando really did have a terrible time on Juno and I applaud their sacrifice and this author for writing such a memorable account.

4.0 out of 5 stars a great historical read, 13 Aug. 2008
This review is from: D-Day Commando: From Normandy to the Maas with 48 Royal Marine Commando (Paperback)
I loved this book and found it acutely interesting. The facts and details of the book I found was overwhelming and some of the script was very harrowing. My Papa was a Royal Marine Commando in the 41st regiment and this book helped me visualise a time in his life he found extremely difficult to speak about. The book made me feel proud and privledged to have been the grand-daughter of one of these brave souls and my thoughts go to all the young men who never made off those beaches. I feel it is so important the we as the future generation of Britain take time to try understand the fear and sacrifices these men and women made on our behalf and how different all our lives would have been without them. They are a generation who is slowly fading away and we have a responsibility to never forget what the did for us and for the future generations to come
