9780807119020: Voices of D-Day: The Story of the Allied Invasion Told by Those Who Were There (Eisenhower Center Studies on War and Peace)

In 1983 the Eisenhower Center at the University of New Orleans began a project to record the recollections of as many people as possible -- civilians as well as soldiers -- who were involved in one of the most pivotal events of the century. Skillfully edited by Ronald J. Drez and first published on the fifty-year anniversary of D-Day, the award-winning Voices of D-Day tells the story of that momentous operation almost entirely through the words of the people who were there.

From the Back Cover:

The story of the allied invasion told by those who were there. Here are gripping descriptions of tension-filled crossings to Normandy by plane and by sea, and harrowing accounts of the horrors of battle--of planes shot down, ships destroyed, and servicemen killed one after another as they attempted to navigate Normandy Beach. And here, too, are tales of remarkable courage and heroism--of soldiers helping the wounded, and of others persevering in the face of death and prevailing against the longest of odds.

About the Author:

Ronald J. Drez, a Marine company commander in the Vietnam War, received two Bronze Stars and the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry. He is now assistant director of the Eisenhower Center at the University of New Orleans.
