They'd explored the city, enjoying a couple of weeks acting like tourists; visiting the beaches, the Opera House, Taronga Zoo, walking over the famous Sydney harbour bridge and taking ferry rides around the harbour.

After starting over in an English coastal village, a woman encounters a startling vision of love from her past in this “delightful contemporary romance” (Long and Short Reviews). Ellie Golden has come to the seaside village of Borteen to pursue her artistic ambitions and leave her troubled past behind. Yet memories are stirred when she meets Harry Dixon, the handsome new headmaster at her son’s school. Ellie knows in her heart that Harry is her former love, Ben Rivers. What they shared on the beach that one night is unforgettable. But she also knows that Ben died in a surfing accident years ago. Harry’s arrival in town is more than a little unsettling for Ellie. Seeing him brings back intense memories of young romance, yet he insists he’s never met her before. But Ellie has other reasons to be unsettled. Someone else from her past is lurking in the shadows of her new life, and the only person she can turn to is the man who calls himself Harry Dixon.

Around the world, when people think of vacation it's the beach they want--even when long distances must be traversed, the seashore is the place to escape the rigors of modern life. How did this come to be, and what does our ongoing love affair with the beach mean? How do shore vacations differ from traditional tourism, and what does this tell us about our fears and dreams? In At the Beach, Jean-Didier Urbain offers witty and insightful answers to these questions. Urbain traces the transformation of the beach from a place of mythological threats and a demanding workplace fraught with danger to a destination for medical treatment and the pursuit of pleasure. He looks to the emergence of the modern vacation in the nineteenth century, examines representations of beachgoing in literature and the arts, and shows the transgressive side of beach culture--from nudism to hedonism to various "scandals" about costume, behavior, and sexuality that make the beach the site of social spectacle as well as leisure. Urbain's ultimate focus is the paradoxical enterprise of the residential seaside vacationer, who travels in order to stay in one place and who leaves the everyday world behind to reconstruct an idealized version of it at the shore. He argues that unlike tourists, who move from place to place, beach vacationers are not seeking to explore nature, to discover other cultures, or even to "get away from it all"; rather, they are attempting to re-create their own identities through a simplified community they can no longer find elsewhere. Blending history with social observation, Urbain presents an original, incisive, and entertaining account of this enduring ritual of escape and recreation.

The Normandy landings of 6 June 1944, across five sectors of the French coast - Utah, Omaha, Gold, Juno and Sword - constituted the largest amphibious invasion in history. This study analyses in depth the preparations and implementation of the D-Day landing on Gold Beach by XXX Corps. Historians have tended to dismiss the landing on Gold Beach as straightforward but the evidence points to a different reality. Armour supported the infantry landing and prior bombing was intended to weaken German defences; however, the bulk of the bombing landed too far inland, and many craft foundered in difficult conditions at sea. It was the tenacity of the assault units and the flexibility of the follow up units which enabled the Gold landing to secure the right flank of the British Army in Normandy. Using detailed primary evidence from The National Archives and the Imperial War Museum, this volume provides a substantial assessment of the background to the landing on Gold, and analyses the events of D-Day in the wider context of the Normandy Campaign.
