FORECAST FOR OVERLORD JUNE 6, 1944

By Doctor J. M Stagg

The author was for General Eisenhower's chief weatherman. His job was to predict weather for the largest invasion in history across waters that were frequently terrible for shipping. Stagg tells in detail the differing interpretations of weather data from three, often conflicting, teams of weathermen. He relates day by day and often hour by hour the complex weather forming over the Atlantic and heading toward England. Ultimately D-Day had to be postponed one day due to a brief window of good weather on expected on June 6 over the Normandy beaches. Apparently the typical bad sea weather expected during June was a factor in the Nazis not foreseeing an invasion when it occurred.

GUNS OF THE REGIMENT

by Doug Knight


Since Confederation, the Royal Regiment of Canadian Artillery has used more than 130 types of guns and rockets. Each filled a role in the defence of Canada serving with the Regiment, being modified, modernized, or upgraded as necessary, and finally being transferred to the reserves. This book will be an invaluable resource to anyone with an interest in these weapons. Each gun has its own section, detailing its development and its career in the Regiment at home and overseas. Special sections deal with the manufacture of the guns, organization and operation of the Regiment, and the mechanization of the artillery in the 1930s. Every gun is illustrated by at least one photograph, many of which have never been previously published.
