More About The Pegasus and Orne Bridges by Neil Barber
 
 
 
Overview
The glider-borne operation to capture Pegasus Bridge has an established place in the annals of warfare. Conducted by Major John Howard and his company of Oxford and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry it was a superbly daring, brilliantly executed coup de main assault. Equally brave was the seizure of the Orne bridges by airborne forces and the defense against ferocious German counter attacks over a prolonged period.

The author who has a deep specialized knowledge of the are and period uses extensive personal accounts to tell this thrilling and inspiring story. He covers events and operations from Ranville in the East to Benouville in the West and this embraces the fierce fighting by 7th, 12th and 13th Parachute Battalions and reinforcements such as the Commandos, sea borne engineers and the Warwicks.

This splendid book will be enjoyed by those at home and those who are lucky enough to visit these historic sites."
