"The rocket-launcher barges were wrongly positioned, [...]"
Author William Golding was in charge of a rocket launching craft on D-Day. At a later assault in the Netherlands he has described the horror of realising that many of the other rocket launchers had held off from going too close to the shore. They were actually bombarding their own landing troops rather than the enemy positions.
Those experiences coloured his writing after the war.
