Written shortly after the war, Bowen's narrative is immediate, direct and compelling. His account, one of the few by a member of a glider regiment, is a brutal insight into the battlefields of World War II and a vivid recreation of just what life was like in an elite unit. From the horror of D-Day and the despair of captivity, this is total war.

This was a quick read concerning a soldier on D-Day. It is another view of that battle from the view of an infantry soldier who parachuted on that day. I love to read about the different views that different soldiers experienced. It is like a giant puzzle where the views fill in all the missing pieces of that great battle. Fascinating.
