Competition winner – May

Fighting through Normandy

Congratulations to Jodie Neville of the West Midlands who wins the competition for May. Hers was the first name taken at random from all of those WW2History.com subscribers who gave the correct answer to the question: Immediately after landing on the Normandy beaches the Allies had to fight their way through countryside which – largely because of the high hedges – hugely favoured the German defenders. This countryside had a special name, one derived from Norman French. What is it?

And the answer was ‘Bocage’. A word that became hateful to the Allied soldiers who had to battle through it.

This month, subscribers have the chance to win a signed hardback copy of my book on Auschwitz. Good luck!
