JWR’s Recommendations of the Week

Here are JWR’s Recommendations of the Week for various media and tools of interest to SurvivalBlog readers. This week the focus is on books and movies related to the June 6, 1944 D-Day beach landings, paratrooper drops, and glider landings.

Books (D-Day):

The Longest Day [1] by Cornelius Ryan. Also see the far less scholarly film of the same name, in the Movies section.)

o  o  o

The Glider Gang [2]. This is a fascinating history of British and American combat landing gliders of WWII, and the men who flew them.


Movies (D-Day):

Saving Private Ryan [3]

o  o  o

The Longest Day [4].  The classic film fictionalized from the book of the same name by Cornelius Ryan. Starring John Wayne and a huge cast of Hollywood’s great actors of the 1960s.

Vlogs and Instructional Videos:

Note: I am continuing to shift the emphasis of my video links away from YouTube, since they have recently announced a strongly anti-gun policy. Please bookmark Full30.com [5] and visit there often!  I must also warn our readers that BitChute [6]–another often touted alternative to YouTube–is plagued by subtle racism and outrageously blatant antisemitism. If you visit there, then be discerning about what is being said, who is saying it, and what agenda(s) lay beneath their message.

o  o  o

KEL TEC SUB 2000 Pro Trigger Job Performance Bundle. [7] Note: Even if you decide to leave your gun’s trigger pull just “as is”, this video includes excellent takedown and reassembly instructions.

o  o  o

Using steel targets in your training & things to be aware of [8]



Birchwood Casey Double Mag .44 Action Spinner (Steel Target) [9]

o  o  o

AR-MOR Targets 8″ x 1/2″ Round AR-500 Gong, Orange, One Size [10]

Glider pilots were trained at Lubbock, Texas and the Silent Wings glider museum at the airport is worth a visit if you find yourself out there.
