If I Don't Come Home Letters from D-Day Synopsis

Published by ITV, Alastair Bannerman who features in the documentary, decided he would write an extended love letter to his wife, recording his thoughts and emotions before and during the invasion. The notebook in which this letter was written was confiscated when he was taken prisoner by the Germans on the 7th of June. Having narrowly escaped death, and survived the ordeal of a prisoner of war camp, Alastair returned home to his wife and sons in April 1945. By a series of extraordinary circumstances, some years later a German translation of his letter was returned to him, and he was able to complete the story. This letter, restored to its original language, tells the story of one man’s role in this momentous historical event, and of the love and hope that sustained him. The book has a Foreword and an Epilogue contributed by his three sons.
