With rare photographs and personal artifacts from private collections, this compelling history depicts the battle that would prove to be the turning point of World War II. The stories of the men who survived the invasion accompany those who courageously lost their lives, painting a remarkable, poignant, firsthand narrative. The author, who was a young boy living in a village near the site of the D-Day landing, includes his perspective, adding to the others' tales to offer a complete re-creation. Accurate, colorful, and authentic, this portrayal of the attack is a personal, moving account of one of the most important--yet heartbreaking--days in history.
