Pegasus Bridge

 

Title: Pegasus Bridge by Stephen E. Ambrose

Category: Nonfiction, History

Review: This book was published in 1985. It was a great book about the British paragliders who landed in France on the night before D-Day. It is a very well written book and I have never read a book that focuses solely on the British part in the part of D-Day of World War II. These guys were very brave men. The book goes through the story before D-Day in the minds of some of the men, on the day of D-Day, and after D-Day. It also tells who has died when he had wrote it. The writer also mentions that some of the British and German soldiers had become friends. So you see that despite being enemies at one time, they have something in common. I’m sure some or most of the men that are mentioned in the book, that were alive, are dead now. Thank you gentlemen for your bravery! I recommend this book even though it is an older book.
