Normandy’s Nightmare War

I have just completed a military proofread on behalf of Pen & Sword Books, this one on the subject of the occupation of Normandy by the German armed forces between 1940 and 1945. The manuscript was very well researched and written, having originally, I understand, been published some years back. It has now been reissued, no doubt to coincide with the 75th Anniversary of D-Day. I found it very thought provoking, and raising the question of whether the things that happened in Normandy would have happened in Britain, had the German armed forces invaded and occupied this country. What comes through strongly is the courage, tenacity and resilience of the ordinary French people, putting up with a situation not of their making, whilst trying to maintain some kind of normality.
