I bought this book direct from the author last year; while visiting the Pegasus Bridge museum in June.
But only got around to reading it this holiday. What can I say about this book! It is possibly the best personal history I've ever read about WWII. 
It is the story of one mans life; centred around his WWII service and D-Day landing on Omaha Beach.
Written by his son, R.J. Slaughter. It took 6 years of research for him to write the book; and it shows in the quality of the history and the writing.
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

Well I'd forgotten that I'd lent this out when I wrote the thread.
Here's the numbers:

  • ISBN-10 ‏ : ‎ 0957368518

That's funny (peculiar)
We have  a little local museum here & the entrance road is a distinct sub type of bascule bridge, the "Scherzer rolling lift bascule bridge" or "rolling bridge". Bridges of this type do not pivot about a hinge point, but roll back on curved tread plates attached to the girders of the main span. This design allows a greater clearance of the waterway for a given opening angle. bridge, only the second one I've ever seen!
They were dubious when I said I'd seen the other one in Normandie.

Wow! I was really surprised to see this where it was.
Maybe its like traffic circles, some places have them, some not.

I love roundabouts and so does my wife.

They should build more.
