The Independent Online
Sir: Your article about the Mulberry harbours identifies with a controversial, minority viewpoint regarding their usefulness. This is very much at odds with the widely held conviction that the Mulberry, a quite remarkable feat of engineering construction, was an essential part of the ultimate success of the D-Day landings.

Yours faithfully,
