This is the story of D-Day as seen through the eyes of the people who were there - from soldiers, French villagers and journalists, to schoolchildren and nurses, who found themselves placed in often extraordinary situations on that historic day in June 1944. Take French Resistance member Andre Heintz and his sister, who have to spread out bloody sheets in the shape of a giant red cross to protect a hospital from bombers; Rosemary Geddes at an RAF listening post, hearing transmissions between German gunners falling silent one by one; Red Cross volunteer Naina Cox, helping injured German POWs in Portsmouth on the afternoon of the invasion; a soldier of the Royal Corps of Signals, discovering his landing craft is carrying a box of white wooden crosses; or Commando Peter Masters, walking all alone towards a German machine gun shouting, 'You are totally surrounded! Give yourselves up!' - copying something he'd seen in a war film. D-Day: Minute by Minute is pure chronological narrative, giving an account of events that is both intimate and epic.

Praise for The JFK Assassination: Minute by Minute "Packed with vivid detail, and arranged in the minute-by-minute style that Jonathan has pioneered on the radio, this account of the murder of John F Kennedy gripped me from the first page to the last..." --Jeremy Vine "Reads like a pacey page-turning cold war political thriller, whilst never forgetting that at its heart, this story is one of a nation's, and a family's tragedy." --Dermot O'Leary "This account stands out by focusing more on the people caught up in events." - The Bookseller
