Join the invasion of Normandy with a fully illustrated account of the Allied landing that changed the direction of World War II. One of the largest amphibious military offensives of all time, more than 4,000 troops lost their lives that day to free Europe from Hitler’s oppressive control. See what it was like for advance paratroops dropped in pre-invasion, and for Allied soldiers to wade ashore and begin taking towns, all under withering Nazi gunfire.

The soldiers who stormed the beaches on June 6, 1944 paved the way for the liberation of Europe and forced Hitler to fight a war on two fronts. Their sacrifice and ultimate victory turned the tide of the Second World War.

Here is the story from the landing craft, on the beach, behind enemy lines, and in the first battles to liberate French towns along the coast. All from the viewpoint of the men on the ground.
