It can be hard to hear the history over the deafening clamour of Hollywood propaganda, which would have it that all the action was at Omaha beach. John Sadler’s book puts that misconception to bed with the story of the British landings at Sword and Gold.

It’s full of personal accounts which show the drama and courage needed to storm beaches under fire. A glossy plate section in the middle has colour and mono photos to illustrate the text. A very good read.
