French TextJune 6, 1944, the 3rd British Infantry Division, considerably reinforced (with an armored unit, special tanks, and a commando unit), landed on Sword Beach, while during the night, paratroopers from the 6th Airborne Division had already created a bridgehead to the northeast of Caen. In Bernage’s work, we encounter not only the German forces confronting the the powerful forces advanced by the Allies, but also the major protagonists, many of whom have become legendary—Lord Lovat, Bill Millin, Major Howard, Commander Kieffer and his French commandos—and their adversaries, Major von Luck or Lieutenant Höller. Sword presents a crucial page of history, brutally unfolded before Caen, the town that was martyred and which was only rescued after a long month of combat.
