Operation Overlord! Probably my favorite operation to read about from that war!
Thanks, Ryana! I’ve been immersed in reading about it for about three years now for the Sunrise at Normandy series, so it’s fun to share!
Fun! I’ll have to see if our library carries your books! They sound amazing!
Thanks, Ryana! If your library doesn’t have it – ask. They can often order it for purchase or do an inter-library exchange.
