Historical Coverage from Manchester's Guardian newspaper

David Woodward, the Manchester Guardian's main war correspondent, was one of three British journalists to parachute into France to cover the early days of the war. Though he was injured upon landing, he spent just a month recovering before returning to the field. The paper's editors have compiled 12 of Woodward's reports from June through August 1944 to provide a glimpse into what the average Brit was reading as an epic war raged right across the English channel.
