We’re very pleased to announce our recent signing of historian and battlefield guide Sean Claxton. His work, a battlefield guide to the actions around Bretteville on 8-9 June, 1944 is the first in a new series for Double Dagger. There is no substitute for actually walking the ground when learning about history, and even a relatively minor action can be both fascinating and instructive. Many military colleges and schools use staff rides, battlefield tours, tactical exercises without troops, or other methods in order to teach about warfare. While there are subtle differences between all of these methods, what they share is the use of ground. This new guide, written by someone who has walked the battlefields around Bretteville many times, is a detailed guide to support a self-guided walking tour.
