This title explores the most momentous turning-point of World War II. Compiled from contemporary letters and diaries, "Voices from D-Day" features stunningly evocative first-hand accounts of the Normandy landings, from both sides of the battle. Here, you will find the voices of the great military planners, Churchill, Paton and Eisenhower, alongside tales from the ordinary soldiers under fire and the French people watching the invasion. It also features material from international sources, including the Eisenhower Centre in America, and the Imperial War Museum and Portsmouth D-Day Museum in the UK.

About the Author:

Jonathan Bastable began his career as a feature writer for The Sunday Times Magazine, where he was awarded a Reuters prize. He is now an experienced writer, editor and journalist and regularly contributes to Conde Nast Traveller. He lives in Brighton.

From Booklist:

This excellent study of D-Day is clearly intended for the sixtieth-anniversary commemoration coming in June. Bastable covers the territory by means of eyewitness accounts, including those of elite combat soldiers, such as the paratroopers and rangers, and the mechanics who kept Allied air superiority as superior as it was and who, like the logisticians, have been unsung heroes of the operation. And that operation emerges in these pages as something only the World War II Anglo-American alliance could have carried out and as utterly essential for the Allied victory that undoubtedly shaped the future of civilization for the better.
