Blood Upon the Risers - D-Day
"Glory, Glory, what a Hell of a Way to Die, and he Ain't Gonna Jump no More..."
American Paratrooper folk song, "Blood Upon the Risers".
D-Day, the invasion of Normandy, everyone knows the story. Thanks to the many books and Hollywood we know the major players and the major actions, some even by heart.
Pegagus Bridge and Carentan are well-known, well documented.
But even the most well-known battles were influenced by small and lesser known actions on their periphery, fought doggedly by unknown and unsung soldiers. It is these men and these situations that the scenarios in the book are all about. It's about sharp skirmishes, stealthy probes, and daring assaults and superior numbers, all the surrounded by the enemy.
