British Airborne Mission, D-Day
This book is about the British 6th Airbourne mission to destroy the German battery at Merville, Normandy. The battery was to the left flank of the British seaborne landings and could have turned the landings into a defeat. The Airbourne troops had to land in the dark, hours prior to the landings. What happens is set back and appaling loses. The determination to carry out their mission against set-backs and overcomming the Russian, Polish and German defenders of Normandy on the sixth of June 1944. The book is well researched and written. I advise any who are interested in the D-Day landings to read this book.
