A review of Marc Morris,
I'm researching a book about the 320th Barrage Balloon Battalion, an African-American unit that landed on Omaha and Utah Beaches on D-Day. I'm looking for landing information for this unit. Any other information anyone may wish to share about this unit is very much appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
I am in the process of developing a new readings course on Interwar Military Innovation (1919-1939) for the Fall Semester and looking for some recommendations.
You really need to find the work of Charles Oman, which remains excellent. A new biography is out by Rory Muir that deals with Wellington up through 1814 and it is a wonderful resource. finally, there is Ed Coss's new book_All For the King's Shilling_ which is precisely about this topic.
