A Gift for my Uncle,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Forgotten Voices of D-Day: A Powerful New History of the Normandy Landings in the Words of Those Who Were There (Paperback)
My Uncle is 87 and has recently moved into a care home. He is in the early stages of dementia but in conversations with him he remembers clearly his time in the army and in particular, the D-Day Landings. It's difficult to try and keep his interest sparked on anything for too long as he's been used to being at home and doing things for himself and has taken a wee dip since moving into care but I gave him this book and normally when you give him books to read on things like this he dismisses them as "tosh, didn't happen like that" but the fact that these were recollections from the memories of old soldiers has grabbed his interest and he's thoroughly enjoying reading it. Thank you.
