BLACKBURN's writing brought war home
By John WARD, Canadian Press, Fri., November 17, 2006
Ottawa -- George BLACKBURN, who was a journalist, a composer, a songwriter, a public servant, a war hero and an acclaimed author, died in an Ottawa hospital Wednesday. He was 90.
He was a gregarious, fun-loving, piano-playing story-teller with a twinkling eye and a gift for a telling phrase.
He wrote award-winning songs, a play that was performed in a purpose-built theatre at Upper Canada Village, and produced and wrote television and radio documentaries.
His three-volume memoir of his harrowing, Second World War career as a forward artillery observer, won praise when it was published in the 1990s. He was showered with prizes and awards, including the Order of Canada.
The books, The Guns of Normandy, The Guns of Victory and Where the Hell are the Guns?, recounted his war experiences, running from the last, idyllic pre-war summer of 1939 when he was working as a reporter in Pembroke, through the hellish time on the front lines calling down artillery fire on enemy positions.
They were written in an unusual first-person style, which gave them a chilling "you are there" realism and they offered a unique account of the role that the gunners played in the bitter, brutal campaign from Normandy through the Netherlands.
BLACKBURN was one of the longest-serving forward observers in the Canadian army. It was a dangerous job and most of his fellow observers were killed or wounded as they plied their hazardous trade within sight of the enemy.
The observers job was to direct fire from gun batteries positioned well behind them onto enemy targets, correcting the aim of the gunners. Because they controlled the artillery, they were key targets for the Germans, who knew if they killed the observer, they blinded the gunners.
BLACKBURN won the Military Cross for protecting a Canadian bridgehead in Holland.
And his books had impact.
"Anyone who reads this will put it down in wonderment, whispering softly, 'So that's what it was like,' " wrote Cliff Chadderton of the War Amps.
Quill and Quire, in a review of The Guns of Normandy, said it "brings us as close as we will ever come to the tension and turmoil of the fighting in Normandy half a century ago."
