This vivid, detailed account of D-Day chronicles the prelude to the invasion of 6 June 1944, summarizes the key aspects of the Allied assault on Normandy and looks at the victorious consequences of the expedition. It is a record of the times and the events and serves as a tribute to the soldiers, sailors and airmen who took part in the savage campaign – Americans, British, Canadians, Free-French and Poles. A special feature of the book is the inclusion of reminiscences, recollections and poems by Allied veterans. Their highly personal accounts are coupled with memorable extracts from contemporary War Correspondents’ reports broadcast by the BBC and America’s NBC. The book concludes with a review of the landing beaches today, the landmarks, museums and the memorials.
