THE FAR SHORE by Lt. Com. Max USNR Miller


Email this review


In character with Daybreak For Our Carrier a momentary, fragmentary record of action by a literary observer, with perhaps less continuity than the earlier book, as these impressions vary in theme and range. The Far Shore, -- the beaches of the Normandy invasion in this case; the Cerman sou at Cherbourg; the cow pasture terrain of Nor; the ship, the Eleaser Wheelock -- and how she was used; the cemetery at the beachhead: plane take-offs of the wounded; a flight to Giberalter; other beaches, Salerno, Anzio, death aboard ship; the final hour of the triple beach assault, and so on. The quality of the writing gives this distinction; the subject matter has been used before.
