The dramatic story, told in 'free-cantering' verse, of the capture of Pegasus and Horsa Bridges during the opening minutes of D-Day, 1944.
This book is a dramatised account of the critical operation to capture Pegasus Bridge by Allied forces in 1944, in the opening stages of D-Day. It is based on an earlier show and DVD presentation by the same author, with original words and music that set the event within the history of previous cross-Channel campaigns. This account draws on the memories of some of those involved and the author's own experience of serving in the same regiment.
