9780233004136: The Longest Day: The D-Day 70th Anniversary Collector's Edition

The Longest Day is one of the best-selling military history books of all time. Its author, war journalist Cornelius Ryan, created a new style of military-history writing based on interview research with hundreds of battle participants. The book was made into the legendary war movie in 1962. This beautifully designed new archive edition is published to commemorate the 70th anniversary of D-Day in 2014. For the first time, Ryan's unabridged classic text is enhanced with the addition of 120 stunning photographs and the inclusion of 30 previously unpublished removable facsimile documents from the Cornelius Ryan Archive, as well as an audio CD featuring Ryan's original research interviews with those who fought this most famous and decisive battle.

Review:

Impressive, hardback, anniversary edition...this timely book finally lets Ryan off his leash and the result is enthralling...as a collector s edition it is pure gold. --Family Tree Magazine

The great strength of [The Longest Day] ...is the incorporation of the primary sources allowing readers to experience the letters, transcripts and maps from the time...with the recordings of many of the leading D-Day protagonists. We can all hear Eisenhower s experiences of D-Day from his own mouth. Nothing will connect new audiences with our past more than this personal testimony from beyond the grave. --Dan Snow

Carlton Books have produced a splendid new edition of a classic book...worth every penny for the excellent illustrated version, a very high quality production and all the extras included in it...If you buy one D-Day 70 commemorative book this year make it this one. --Sommecourt

This glossy, coffee table-style offering will introduce a new generation to Cornelius Ryan s work, as well as making an impressive...addition to any military historian s collection. --Soldier Magazine, June 2014.
