David O'Keefe's Seven Days in Hell

More than 300 soldiers from the Black Watch found themselves pinned down, as the result of strategic blunders and the fog of war, and only a handful walked away. Drawing on formerly classified documents and rare first-person testimony, O’Keefe follows the footsteps of the ghosts of Normandy, giving a voice to the men who sacrificed everything in the summer of 1944.

David O’Keefe is an award-winning historian, documentarian and professor at Marianopolis College in Westmount, Quebec. He served with the Black Watch (Royal Highland Regiment) of Canada in the Canadian Forces in Montreal.
