"The best sort of popular military history."--Times Literary Supplement. No one who was alive on June 6, 1944, will ever forget that historic day...and those who came after will hear of it with awe: it was the moment when the tide of war turned to victory, when the long-elusive dream of peace finally seemed attainable. This minute-by-minute account of the Normandy landings by Allied forces unforgettably reconstructs, in pictures and first-person reminiscences, every important minute of the invasion. 224 pages (80 in color), 90 b/w illus., 9 13/16 x 9 13/16.
