Compare and contrast two brilliant pieces up on Browser.
This one about the momentous moments leading up to Dwight Eisenhower's decision to launch the invasion of Normandy - 2,000,000 people (mostly men) 'poised like a coiled spring', waiting to surge bravely across the English Channel to attack the well-entrenched Nazi forces.
