244 pages; profusely illustrated with black & white photographs. A collection of short essays and hard-hitting photographs that chronicle the experiences of the Allied forces in the weeks before and after the D-Day landings at Normandy. The text comes from the soldiers themselves as well as war correspondents who travelled with the troops and government documents. Similarly, the powerful and profound photographs which accompany the text were taken by military and civilian photographers who risked their lives to visually record the events. "With an immediacy and intensity that comes only from firsthand experience, this volume tells a story of days and weeks of unimaginable loss and extreme hardship, and ends with the bittersweet joy of victory." The book is "a carefully researched collection of words and images that provides a unique perspective on the Invasion of Normandy: deeply personal memories from those who experienced the agony of the day-to-day conflict and the profound relief of a hard-won victory."
