Beschreibung:

Personal accounts of D-Day drawn from newly available WWII archives share the experiences of aerial, land, and naval troops-includes photos.
On June 6, 1944, an Allied force of American, British, and Canadian troops stormed the beaches of Normandy, France, and turned the tide against the occupying Nazi army. Harrowing and heroic, the events of D-Day were recorded in the personal writings of those who were there. Here, Francis Crosby has compiled a comprehensive collection of previously unpublished letters, diaries, photographs, and reminiscences that tell the story of D-Day as it has never been told before.

With the use of new international archives, Crosby has culled vivid and detailed eye-witness accounts from each beach, as well as perspectives from land, sea, and air. This fascinating collection includes entries from American, British, and Canadian troops, the Merchant Navy and the Royal Air Force, and newly available German materials. Also included are contemporary and retrospective reactions of women "in the know" and those whom knew from "unofficial sources" of the immediate imminence of the assault.
