Out of the Night - The First to Go In by Robert Taylor pays tribute to the courage of the paratroopers and aircrew of the British 6th Airborne Division during the D-Day invasion.
Silently out of the night they came. With flaps deployed, three timber and plywood Horsa gliders swept swiftly down through the night skies, rapidly closing with their objective – Pegasus Bridge over the Caen Canal. On board, with tension etched deep into their blackened faces, men from the Oxfordshire & Buckinghamshire Light Infantry, part of the British 6th Airborne Division, braced themselves for landing. They, and sappers from the Royal Engineers, were about to become the first fighting force to land in France on D-Day. They were about to make history. This new graphite collectors edition is personally signed by veterans who fought in the epic encounter at Pegasus Bridge, assaulted the beaches and one of the six Halifax pilots who towed the gliders into action on that momentous night.
Out of the Night - The First to Go In is signed by two of the veterans who fought at Pegasus Bridge:
