Synopsis

A Dozen D-Days: not only examines and dramatizes the fierce fighting during the summer of 1944 for the Nazi held city of Caen, but also seeks to unravel further chilling phenomena: the appalling indoctrination of Germany's youth during Hitler's reign of terror and the highly charged, bloody intensity of waging 'total' war! Twelve short 500 word illustrated stories, underpinned by bibliographic footnotes, encapsulate the complexities into the battle, from pre-invasion animosity to fanatical resistance. Similarly their characterizations provide the spectrum of human emotions and behaviour: exceptional deeds of heroism to acts of extraordinary evil, while their poignant, twist endings leave a constant and lasting sting.Woven together, they create a dramatic insight of the month long Canadian cordon of the Godforsaken city. A city, which along with its airfield at Carpiquet, was Field Marshal Montgomery's D-Day objective. A city, the Fuhrer, and his Normandy Legions refused to abandon.
