Default New book in view - North Normandy

Hello,
I am preparing a new book about the 7th canadian Brigade, from the period
18 aug until 31 Aug. Like you know, the three Bns of this Brigade were : Regina Rifles,Royal Winnipeg Rifles and 1st Scot Regiment. I have, of course, the war diaries, but I am looking for reports, some personnal stories from veterans and maps representing the progression of this unity from Fontaine les bassets - Vimoutiers - Orbec - Bernay - Harcourt - Fontaine la Soret (the march to the river risle - Brionne - Elbeuf - The Seine - cote 80 - Freneuse - Tourville la Rivière - Rouen - until near Neufchatel.
By the way, if you know footages about all of this, i'll be more than happy.
Some years ago, I wrote Combats at St Lambert about the South Alberta.
I thanks given you in advance for your help.

Dear Mr,

I thanksgiven you to procure me this list composed of officers with their respective unity.
I have some doubts that it exists a list so perfect for the period from Aug 18 to 31 aug 44? There is so much changement posts.
