Normandy June 1944: The Night of Liberation, Gilles Vallée and Christophe Esquerré.
A heavily illustrated book that follows one stick of paratroops from
the 3rd Battalion, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment as they dropped
behind Utah Beach on D-Day. A splendid educational publication that
doesn't pull its punches, following a stick that saw its leader killed
before reaching the ground, suffered heavy losses and fell into German
hands almost immediately. Also follows the aircraft that flew them to
Normandy and its aircrew.
