9781849015790: D-Day: The Normandy Landings in the Words of Those Who Took Part

From Wikipedia: The Normandy landings, codenamed Operation Neptune, were the landing operations of the Allied invasion of Normandy, in Operation Overlord, during World War II. The landings commenced on Tuesday, 6 June 1944 (D-Day), beginning at 6:30 AM British Double Summer Time (GMT+2). In planning, D-Day was the term used for the day of actual landing, which was dependent on final approval. The landings were conducted in two phases: an airborne assault landing of 24,000 British, American, Canadian and Free French airborne troops shortly after midnight, and an amphibious landing of Allied infantry and armoured divisions on the coast of France starting at 6:30 AM. There were also decoy operations under the codenames Operation Glimmer and Operation Taxable to distract the German forces from the real landing areas. From the blurb: It was the greatest amphibian operation of all time. Code-named "Overlord" the planning of the Normandy landings on June 6, 1944,had taken more than two years and D-Day involved over 5000 craft delivering 156,000 men onto French soil heavily defended by German troops.
