5.0 out of 5 stars Nomatter how much you've read before about the 506th & D-Day, this book will tell you more., 9 Dec 2009
This review is from: Tonight We Die as Men: The Untold Story of Third Battalion 506 Parachute Infantry Regiment from Toccoa to D-Day (General Military) (Hardcover)
I have read many books on the 506th, D-Day and the Normandy Landings in general but this book told me much, much more. Having visited the Ramsbury area and Normandy many times it still shed new light on many places I have already been to and will be used for reference on future visits. It highlighted many places that are still recognisable today and is a great background read with maps and photos of the areas concerned.
The first hand accounts from the veterans make you realise the shocking brutality of war and what these men went through but also had me laughing with the small stories of the lighter moments. You begin to realise that these were just normal young men trying to cope in extraordinary circumstances and it is an amazing journey with them through the book.
This is an excellent book for anybody with an interest in WWII, D-Day & the Normandy Campaign. You will not be disappointed!
