Three Days in Hell 7-9 June 1944
Heimdal Publishing

The Normandy campaign of 1944 is probably one of the most documented areas of WWII. This new book from Heimdal concentrates on one part of the Normandy landings for a period of 3 days after the landing the 7th to the 9th of June 1944. The area concentrated on is the Canadian landings and the subsequent advance into Normandy which was quite bloody.  The book makes valuable use of testimony from both sets of combatants, and the local French population who were caught up in the fierce fighting with no where to go. The book offers a degree of completeness not offered in some publications through the use of this testimony, plans of the battles; and photographs (wartime & contemporary). Also of interest is a short section at the beginning of the book which shows what life was like before the 6th of June for all those involved. The book is A4 softbound with 160 pages featuring maps, colour and Black & white photographs.

Conclusion

This is primarily a history book covering these 3 days and the fighting between the Canadian and the Germans. It covers this excellently and the addition of testimony from the local French population shows how hellish it must have been for all sides. The photographs will be of some use to us modellers as well. Highly recommended.
