Normandy Invasion

Two Generals
by Scott Chantler

In March, 1943, Scott Chantler's grandfather, Law Chantler, shipped out for active service with the Highland Light Infantry of Canada. Not long afterward, he and his best friend, Jack Chrysler, found themselves amidst one of the most pivotal and treacherous military operations of World War II: the Allied invasion of Normandy. 
It’s a harrowing and touching story, made vibrant in graphic novel format. Chantler uses colour to good effect in contrasting the dangers of combat (red) with the relatively peaceful scenes (khaki). 
A moving tribute to all the brave men who fought and died for their country.
