Product description

Review

This book is an outstanding contribution to military history – but more to the morale of the veterans now past the three score years and ten. -- Ernire Rooke-Matthews MBE - Signals Platoon, HQ Company, 9th Parachute Battalion

Synopsis

The Allied assault on Hitler's Fortress Europe began in the dawn of 6 June 1944 with daring airborne landings by men of the Parachute Regiment. This book tells of the Paras' first week of intense fighting from the assault on the vital Merville Battery onwards. Through personal accounts and detailed research a full and dramatic picture is built up of the actions that occurred as the Germans desperately attempted to displace the Allies' tenuous beachhead.
