June 6, 1944, shortly before H-hour, on board Allied ships en route to Normandy, every soldier who has to tread its beaches becomes prey to seasickness, anxiety, fear, haunted by the image of a loved one left behind. Suddenly the shrill sound of a bagpipe and the galvanizing gushes flooded bridges and air tanks. It was the famous Scottish song, "The Road to the Isles.”

In this book, Bill Millin tells the story of his landing and the Battle of Normandy. All of which he got through unscathed with his legendary bagpipe whose sound galvanized Major Howard and his men who took and held the Pegasus Bridge on the night of June 5 to 6, 1944. This is a fantastic testimony that takes us through mysterious Scottish moors to the beaches of Normandy.
