A Bloody Dawn

A Bloody Dawn

The amphibious landings on D-Day were a truly international coalition operation, involving Polish, American, British and Canadian troops and even Norwegian ships. Each of these nations is rightly proud of their men who took part in the fighting, which included many Irishmen or their descendants. The author has traced the part played by many Irishmen during the campaign and pieced together their role and in doing so reveals some very interesting facts. For example, General James Gavin, commanding the 82nd Airborne Division, was of Irish parentage, and the Niland brothers, on whose story the film of ‘Saving Private Ryan’ was based, were also of Irish extraction. Many fascinating aspects here, including pilots, soldiers and seamen, make this book worth reading as part of the wider story of the Normandy campaign.

  • D-Day ... June 6, 1944, Normandy ... Well, for sure, the first 20 minutes of the film "Saving Private Ryan"! Yes, yes, that’s exactly right, only tens of times tougher and hundreds of times more interesting, that’s what this book is about. She passed the free online plagiarism checker for students and undoubtedly requires that she be included in the school curriculum. After all, what is essentially this one day? Big landing operation. God, everyone knows her, and they watched the film mentioned, and played in several parts of Call of Duty, saw this storm. But no, it’s not so simple. In the most detailed way, the book tells about everything that related to the operation. Starting from the characteristics of the commanders of the opposing forces - Eisenhower and Rommel and the composition of the troops and up to the last landing boat and an overturned glider that fell in hedges.
