UK Kirkus Review » Mike Morgan's D-Day Hero is for those who like their military history with a whiff of cordite. In this vivid new book we get a fresh and individual account of the battle in Normandy 60 years ago, as seen by Company Sergeant Major Stanley Hollis. For a slim volume this one has ambitious scope. It not only looks at Hollis's life, career and regiment, but also relates these to the wider significance of D-Day and the Second World War as a whole. In essence, though, it is a very personal record of an outstanding member of a Yorkshire regiment and its real strength lies in the eyewitness accounts from commanding officers and Hollis's peers; these give a wonderful perspective on the real and visceral experience of the landings. The tone is absolutely partisan, but draws on wide range of sources as it develops this engaging portrait of a brave and very determined man. (Kirkus UK)
