49th parallel by Michael Powell( Visual )

2 editions published between 2007 and 2012 in English and held by 515 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the voice-over proclaims, the 49th parallel is the only undefended frontier in the world. The parallel is the goal of a small group of Nazis, survivors of a U-boat that has been spotted and sunk in Hudson Bay, deep in Canadian waters. The United States is not yet at war with Germany, and if Corporal Hirth and his six crew members can reach it, they can be repatriated to Germany with no fuss. But their trek across Canada becomes a fierce struggle to survive, as they encounter and are opposed in turn by Johnnie the trapper, a small Hutterite community, a Canadian intellectual, and a Canadian soldier gone AWOL
Overlord by Stuart Cooper( Visual )

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 427 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drafted into the British army, young Tom Beddows leaves his parents and his beloved cocker spaniel and reports for military duty, arriving late because of a German air raid. In training camp, he makes friends with Jack and Arthur. They all wish the war would go away, so they could return to their parents and girlfriends. Finally ordered into combat, a sense of impending doom prompts Tom to write a consoling letter to be delivered to his parents instead of the official military notice. Stoic and fatalistic, he will be among the first troops to land in Normandy at the launch of Operation Overlord, the Allied offensive to push the Nazis out of France
