Three days in June (Mount Longdon)

#1
Hi Chaps, as some of you know ‘Three days in June’ is now available on Amazon, but I must warn you, it is quite a long read over 500 pages, I was told to cut out 75,000 words as it was too long, but I couldn’t as I thought that everyone I spoke to held another piece of the jigsaw, and their testimony was vital, in order to give an all-round view of what was happening. It has been a long journey, but I think we now have a better understanding of the battle for Mount Longdon. I would like to thank the many blokes who came forward to tell me their story, it was an absolute pleasure going around the country meeting blokes, some of whom I hadn’t seen for years.
Thank you to one and all,
Bye for now Jimmy

Hi Smart as carrots, you are completely wrong, 'A cold night in June' is complete work of fiction, the author did not speak to any members of 3 Para, it is fantasy and completely invented, put together out of the authors imagination.
'Three Days in June' is the actual account of the battle, it includes over 50 interviews with all ranks 3 Para, and if you care to read the reviews you will see that, those that were there are a happy that the battle has at last been correctly reported, ps ‘Three days in June’ will go into print on Monday,
All the best Jimmy O'Connell

Bought the book, bought a Kindle to read it on!
Didnt know about the cold night in June though?
Was he there Jimmy?
no, he dreamt it all up in his head, not the slightest bit of truth or fact in any of 'Cold night in June' a bit of a boys own.

James,

Have just read the freebie available on Kindle.

An excellent account of men at war. Suffice to say I will be buying a copy.

I can confirm Jimmy's statement.
I made all of it up, it is very much fiction.
Thank you.
Rob.

Read this back to back with Three Days in June and it was laughable.

Three Days in June was an exhaustive account, sharing the experience of one group through to ceasefire, then going back to the start line to relive the same event
with another group, knowing what fate awaits some of the named individuals.

Astonished to read the awards list and discover the omission of a particular section commander, who by every account was the definition of inspirational leadership.

Was the section commander found to have certain items in his webbing?

I shall be ordering one for Kindle looking forward to it.
