1st ed., 1993. Xvi + 496 pp., 59 photo-plates. D.j., 24 x 16cm. FINE. This is the authentic story of D-Day as it has never been told before – entirely from those who took part, on both sides. From letters, diaries, memoranda, official reports and from innumerable interviews with veterans in the US, Canada, Britain, France and Germany, the author has compiled a startlingly intimate interview of what it was like to be at D-Day. This book also covers the tense and secret build-up to the operation and includes the voices of women and children in Britain as they witnessed the arrival of the yanks, as well as recording the relationship between the French and their occupiers.
