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!

This book is an excellent veterans account of the D Day, and what happened on the 6th June 1944. Quite an emotional read.

My Uncle is 87 and has recently moved into a care home. He is in the early stages of dementia but in conversations with him he remembers clearly his time in the army and in particular, the D-Day Landings. It's difficult to try and keep his interest sparked on anything for too long as he's been used to being at home and doing things for himself and has taken a wee dip since moving into care but I gave him this book and normally when you give him books to read on things like this he dismisses them as "tosh, didn't happen like that" but the fact that these were recollections from the memories of old soldiers has grabbed his interest and he's thoroughly enjoying reading it. Thank you.

I bought this book for my husband, who has enjoyed other books from this series. He thoroughly enjoyed reading it, as the first hand accounts are both fascinating and extrememly moving. The book is very easy to dip into because of its format. My father fought on the Normandy beaches, and so it was especially important for us to read this book. No one can tell the story better than those who were there, and we should record their experiences while they are still with us. Lets hope their sacrifice along with their voices are never forgotten.

Bought this for my brother who's really into this kind of thing. He said it was compelling, harrowing, sad, amazing and couldn't put it down. Would recommend
