D-Day and Beyond, Part 3

Continuing the story of a wargame.

5th June 1944

And so we begin our embarkation.  I am still very worried about those guns just over the hill from the beach we are to assault tomorrow.  I pray that the bombing raids and naval bombardment will help to take them out of the picture before we have to go in.

One of my chaps came to me today requesting compassionate leave.  When asked why, he replied “Death in the family Sir.”  When I asked who, he replied:  “Nobody yet Sir, but there bloody soon will be and I want to go home and console my parents before it happens.”
