This review is from: Forgotten Voices of D-Day: A Powerful New History of the Normandy Landings in the Words of Those Who Were There (Paperback)
This is yet another very good book in the Forgotten Voices series.
The book is compiled using interviews with those who took part, were involved in Operation Overlord.
It includes accounts of the preparations for D-Day, the deceptions, the tragedy of the exercise off Slapton Sands, the airborne attack prior to the landings, and the landings and the fight to gain a foothold in Normandy and so head towards Germany, and end the war.
The book looks at this operation from a British perspective, which makes a change, having read a few books about D-Day.It proves that the Yanks didn't win the war single handed.
A recommended read for those interested in the history of WW2,we owe those guys so much, young men mostly putting their lives on the line in the fight against Hitler!
