Extracts from this document...


´╗┐Another wave of sea spray hit his shivering face like bullets pounding into the practise board he used this morning as the boat smashed into a colossal wave. They neared the beach. No longer was it the picturesque setting of crystal waters and soft, light grains of sand that puts smiles on children?s faces. Now it was a scene straight out of hell with fire and explosions of destruction, a place where the cries of agonized men would be forever etched into the ancient cliffs.
