This review is from: The Day the Devils Dropped in: The 9th Parachute Battalion in Normandy D-Day to D+6: Merville Battery to the Chateau St Come (Paperback)
I recently visited the Merville Battery - very well preserved, and a worthwhile place to visit if in the area. The book, though, really brought it to life, with the recollections and photographs of those who were there - hugely interesting and moving to see the site (which includes video recollections by some of the participants) with the opportunity to overlay that with these personal recollections. A fantastic read in its own right, but indispensable if planning to visit the battery.
