Heroes of Normandy - The Untold Stories (Lock 'n Load Tactical Series Book 1) Paperback
Storytelling from a New Perspective
Available Formats and Editions: PDF, MP3, Amazon Kindle, Audible, Apple Books & Paperback
Heroes of Normandy The Untold Stories delivers seven action-packed combat stories. You will be taken behind enemy lines with a young Airborne soldier in the early morning hours of D-Day and then lead British troops forward as they discover the truest definition of heroism. You will also witness the same events through the eyes of retreating Germans and advancing Americans and might end up rooting for both sides to survive. You will experience a gritty assault against a stronghold in a German-held town, and learn the terrible secret hidden there. A German squad behind enemy lines to retrieve a wounded SS officer, and the luckiest soldier in the US Army joins forces with the worst British jinx to wreak havoc. These are the Heroes of Normandy and their Untold Stories.
We have veered slightly from producing games and publishing a book of fiction, a collection of short stories, Heroes of Normandy – The Untold Stories Vol. 1. The stories are set in Normandy, France, on or just after D-Day, June 6th, 1944, and many of the characters are named after the Heroes and Leaders in Lock ’n Load Tactical’s Heroes of Normandy game. One of the great features of the Lock ’n Load Tactical (LnLT) series is that many of the scenarios play out in a cinematic fashion, the action fast and deadly and down to the wire, often with a daring Hero’s assault or a Leader’s timely usage of a skill making all the difference. A scenario was somewhat like a short story but without a strong and unifying narrative or voice. The Untold Stories provides that voice.
There is nothing quite like enjoying a great game and sharing it with your friends. The idea for this book series started from a long desire to tell these stories as well as enjoying hearing them. One of the many wonderful things with books, comics, and of course games is sharing the fun together. Many hours of storytelling can start off with “Do you remember, or I can’t believe this happened.” It is clear to us we weren’t the only ones who enjoy hearing these stories. We wanted our stories to be told with characters you know and enjoy playing our games but at the same time if you never played one of our games you would still enjoy reading these stories. So, a number of the story elements are taken from our Lock ’n Load Tactical game series, specifically the names of leaders, heroes, units, and the occasional moments inspired by our own gameplay. By doing this it has added a new level to our stories and added the ability and similarity for these men and their stories to live on not just in our games but also in our stories and hearts.
