D-Day. Suggested reading and viewing.

Today, as we head towards the start of the 75th anniversary of the start of the battle for Normandy, I have two book recommendations and one film recommendation for you.  These are particularly aimed at the more serious wargamer as background reading or viewing.


“Death of a Regiment”, by John Foley.

“Warriors for the Working Day”, by Peter Elstob.


“Overlord” (IWM). This film, unlike many others with similar titles and themes,  actually concludes on D-Day.  It starts much earlier.  No further spoilers.
