Today is the anniversary of D-Day, seventy-four years ago.
Traditional epic fantasy always revolves around the character of the hero, whether it be Bilbo Baggins, Frodo, Taran, Ged, or even my more humble Jute. But all those heroes, regardless of the truth in them and what the choices they made, exist in the realm of the imagination.
War in our world often uncovers heroes, willing or not. If you could use some remembrance of a not-so-distant time past, peopled by such heroes, please take a few moments and read this account of Omaha Beach on D-Day.
