WHITAKER, Denis, Brigadier-General, Shelagh WHITAKER, with Terry COPP. Victory at Falaise : The Soldiers' Story. (Toronto) : Harper Collins PublishersLtd., (2000). First Printing. Pp [i]-[xii],1-[372],+ 32 pp plates. Maps. I ndex. 8vo, green paper covered boards, silver lettering to spine. “The authors are as intrigued by the warriors as by the war. They disprove the revisionist characterization of the ineffective, ill-led, overcautious Allied soldier using sheer fire-power to overwhelm the skilled German underdog. The unearth, instead, stories of raw courage of the volunteer soldier and airman who fought with resourcefulness and initiative. The recollections, diaries and letters home of these young men in their teens and twenties tell it all: the jokes, the pranks and camaraderie; the loneliness and, especially, the terror of being wounded or killed. The authors also tell the wretched story of the Norman villagers in this conflict, and probe the cruel tale of German teenagers being converted into killing machines.” - from the dj. Very good in unclipped dustjacket. 30.00
