If I Don’t Come Home: Letters From D-Day book I’m including today on this D-Day 76th Anniversary, June 6, 2020.
First of all, in preparing for writing today’s blog, I have been looking for books including letter-writing from D-Day in their timeframe.
Secondly, coming across this book has me looking also for the ITV drama-documentary of the same title I am reading about in the foreword.
Subsequently, we are beginning with the Kindle Edition of the If I Don’t Come Home: Letters From D-Day 75 page book, over at Amazon.
If I Don’t Come Home: Letters From D-Day book
The book is by Alastair Bannerman. It includes a Foreword and Afterword by Alastair’s three sons, Andrew, Richard, and Tim Bannerman.
“Bannerman took part in the D-Day invasion of the 6 June 1944, and was taken prisoner-of-war and reported as ‘missing in action’. His diary, an extended love-letter to his wife, was confiscated by the German army, …”
The description goes on to share about it being “returned to him in a German translation, many years after the war”.
Next, looking at Barnes & Noble for a Nook version, I’m not finding one.
Furthermore, in looking around to find a copy of the movie for viewing, I’m not locating one immediately. I’m going to continue searching for one.
This is a book I’m really looking forward to reading, even if on digital, and not on printed format.
