The delay to D-Day, owing to bad weather, resulted in the men of the 1st Battalion, Royal Norfolk Regiment spending a rough night at sea, during which most of them were violently sick. Told from the soldiers' point of view and including many first-hand accounts, this description of their progress in the following months includes the assault on Sword Beach and later battles at Caen and in the Netherlands and Germany. Slightly off-mint.
