The Normandy Landings, the largest amphibious operation the world has ever seen, marked the 'beginning of the end of the Second World War.' Russell Miller's superb book offers a definitive account of 'being alive in 1944, being young, and being at war.' Letters, diaries, memos and dozens of interviews with veterans from all sides recreate the deception plans and dry runs, the desperate German wait behind the Atlantic Wall, the disagreements between Allies, the ghastly ordeal of Omaha Beach, resistance sabotage operations and the first day of battle.From the Back Cover:
"Magnificent...every recollection in this book brings something of the sounds, sights and smells of war... shattering and exceptionally readable." - Martin Gilbert, Sunday Express
