BOOK REVIEW by Jack Culshaw
Martin Bowman has written over seventy books, mostly on Aeronautics of the 20th Century. This new edition book is a comprehensive history, in his own words, of Everyday Heroes during the Battle of Normandy.
All nationalities, American, British, Canadian, Australian, French, and many more have been interviewed, and their personal stories have been chronicled. Civilians on the ‘home front’ have also told their personal experiences of the many thousands of troops massed in England before D-Day, relating the kindness and traumas of every day people before the greatest invasion in history.
The brilliant photographs, some which have not been printed before, give the reader an insight into the ghastly process of war.
In addition our readers will be most interested to see and study the episodes of members of our own association, George ‘Jimmy’ Green, Brian Lingwood, and Jack Culshaw.
This comprehensive book is a must for the bookshelves of, not only ex-service people, but anyone interested in our history, and of the purposeful and greatest mass of military might the world has ever seen.
Anyone who does not wish to buy this volume can order it through the library service quoting its name, author, and publishers.
