Synopsis: D-Day is the remarkable story of the planning and execution of the Normandy landings as seen through the eyes of those closest to the action—the young soldiers who were the first to storm the beaches, their pressured commanders, the daring French Resistance volunteers, and the special commandos and double-agents engaged in a deadly game of truth and deception. More than the dramatic chronicle of the greatest campaign in military history, this handsome volume is also a tribute to the veterans who, with their heroic efforts, changed the course of the war—and of history.

From the Publisher: June 2004 marks the 60th anniversary of D-Day, the last time official reunions of veterans will take place. This is our chance to honor the veterans of the biggest military invasion and defence the world has ever seen.

The first section of the book addresses the build-up to and planning behind this huge amphibious assault, an amazing 3 years in the organising: the role of the French resistance in mapping the coastline; the calamitous training exercise Operation Tiger when 800 soldiers drown in the Channel; the unknown Allied officer who planned the invasion; spies such as Garbo who radioed misinformation to the Germans leading them to believe the invasion would take place at another time and place.

The second half of the book is a dramatic hour-by-hour countdown through the "longest day," from the Omaha Beach landings, powerfully recorded by the renowned photographer Robert Capa, the massacre of the Gestapo's prisoners at Caen Jail, to Rommel's dash back to the beaches from Germany where he has been taken unaware.

Told through the eyes of the men who were there: from veterans—both Allied and German—to the spies, resistance members, reporters and official photographers. Fresh stories, surprising heroes.
