"Firing On Fortress Europepresents first-hand, personal accounts of members of HMS Belfast's crew alongside her log books to bring to life the role the ship played in the invasion in 1944."-- "The Irish News"
"A number of first-hand, personal accounts of members of HMS Belfast - the Royal Navy warship from which one of the first shots of D-Day was fired - have also been revealed in a new book, Firing On Fortress Europe, published by the museum. It presents the accounts from the ship's crew alongside her log books to bring to life the role the ship played in the invasion in 1944. Accounts, images, journals and recorded interviews reveal stories from King George VI visiting before HMS Belfast left British waters, to narrowly avoiding explosions, rescuing and treating the wounded and going ashore to clear the beaches."-- "The Daily Mail"
