9781841763668: D-Day 1944 (3) Sword Beach & British Airborne Landings

The third title in Osprey's survey of the D-Day landings of World War II (1939-1945). At 0016hrs on 6 June 1944 a Horsa glider ground to a halt a mere 60 yards from the Orne Canal bridge at Bénouville in Normandy. A small group of British paratroopers burst from it and stormed the bridge within minutes. The Allied liberation of Nazi-occupied Europe had begun. Within a few hours landing craft would swarm towards Ouistreham as British 3rd Division stormed ashore at Sword Beach. The battle would then begin to break through to relieve the paratroopers. In the third of the D-Day volumes Ken Ford details the assault by British 6th Airborne Division and the British landings on Sword Beach that secured the vital left flank of the invasion.

Book Description Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2002. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Howard Gerrard (illustrator). Language: English . Brand New Book. On the eastern flank of the Allied landings in Normandy was Sword Beach, which was the responsibility of the British 3rd Division. Their objectives for D-Day were to join up with the Canadians landing on Juno and capture the town of Caen. In addition, they were to link up with the British airborne forces who were to secure the eastern flank of the beachhead. The leading waves landed at 7.30am and managed to get off the beach without heavy German resistance. This book looks at how the severe congestion on Sword Beach allowed the defending German forces, particularly the 21st Panzer Division, valuable time to react, preventing Caen from being taken on the first day, where much blood was shed before it finally fell.
