For many veterans alive today, the events at that period are still as strong in their minds now, as they were 60 years ago, however as the years pass, their memories fade and sadly, fewer survivors remain to tell the tales of what really happened on the lead up to D-Day, during the invasion itself and the subsequent "moping up" battles.
This truly fascinating book is fully illustrated with many excellent previously unpublished photographs, it is packed to the hilt with detailed, factual and graphic accounts of events as they happened and are told by those who were actually there at the time! Sadly, many of these brave men and women are no longer alive today, however their gripping tales of what they witnessed then, have been recorded in this splendid volume for everyone to read today (over half a century later) and in the future.
all three military services (men and women) American and merchant marine. Highly recommended as a basis for further study of this momentous period of history.

I bought this as background reading before going on a tour of the Normandy beaches. It was excellent to get a personal perspective from those who were there.Published 11 days ago by Arthur Cornwell
As a volunteer researcher I am always interested to read the views of people who were in the action. The War Diaries do not give a personal point of view.Published 1 month ago by Janet Witcomb
