This is the paperback version of the very successful D Day Spearhead Brigade book published in 2019 by Christopher Jary and team.
Landing on the Normandy beaches early in the morning of 6th June 1944 demanded iron resolution and stalwart courage. This book, the story of the men of one of the British army’s spearhead brigades that day, salutes their courage and their sacrifice. It is dedicated to all who landed – or tried to land – on D-Day.
Illustrated with photographs and infographics, it is a must read for all those interested in this event, and focuses on the role of 231 Brigade (1st Bn The Hampshire Regiment, 2nd Bn The Devonshire Regiment and 1st Bn The Dorsetshire Regiment).
