Combined Operations by Clayton Marks
Contents include lengthy eye-witness accounts of famous raids and invasions, e.g., re Canadians at Dieppe by Al Kirby (from Woodstock, Ontario), poems and prose by Canadian sailors, e.g., 'The Sinking of the S.S. Clan McTaggart' after the North African landings by W. Smith, C.P.O., stories re life, death and chaos during landings in Sicily and Italy (July 10 and September 3, 1943), and some rare, some iconic photographs of Allied troops in training and battle action.
The photographs below give some indication of what can be gleaned from Clayton's book that, according to one of his sons, was "typed up by my mother at the kitchen table."
