As Russell Miller writes in his Foreword to this extraordinary book, Nothing Less Than Victory is "the authentic story of D-Day as it has never been told before -- entirely by those who took part, on both sides. It is compiled...from letters home, diaries, memoranda, official reports, and innumerable interviews with veterans in the Untited States, Canada, France, and Germany." From the exhausted American paratrooper on guard duty who can keep awake only by pulling the pin from a grenade and clutching it tightly in his hand, to the German soldier sitting in a bunker, with the enemy on the roof, helplessly radioing for orders, this extraordinary book shows the human face of one of the most dramatic events in military history.

From the Inside Flap:

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
