A Bloody Dawn : The Irish at D-Day by Dan Harvey
There were 'Irish' among the airborne and glider-borne infantry landings; they were on the beaches from dawn; they were in the skies above; and standing off at sea on naval vessels all along the Normandy coastline. They were also prominent among the D-Day Planners and Commanders of the greatest combined military operations ever attempted in the history of warfare. It was a task of enormous complexity and great difficulty. The story of D Day is huge and the ' Irish ' have a rightful place among its many chapters. 'A Bloody Dawn - The Irish at D-Day' tells their story.
