I have a book review of Stephen Ambrose’s D-Day June 6, 1944 dangling loosely in my brain, waiting for the time to cinch it into readable form. I took ten pages of notes in my journal.
While I read this book I was thoroughly challenged (still am!) by the transition to a complex job. It was helpful to read what was expected and executed by the soldiers on 6-6-44. Let’s say it put my issues into perspective.
Here are two quotes to launch my D-Day thoughts.
All around him bombers were climbing, throttles wide open, using landing lights to avoid collisions. There were some anyway; airmen said that night assembly created a high pucker factor on each seat. p.243
