TWO GENERALS

Two Generals cover

In March of 1943, Scott Chantler’s grandfather Law Chantler shipped out across the Atlantic for active service with the Highland Light Infantry of Canada, along with his best friend, Jack Chrysler, a fellow officer. Not long afterward, they would find themselves making a rocky crossing of the English Channel, about to take part in one of the most pivotal and treacherous military operations of World War II: the Allied invasion of Normandy. Told through the eyes of everyday heroes, Two Generals is a story about friendship, and the tragedies and absurdities of war.
