Dawn of D-Day: These Men Were There: 6 June 1944 (Greenhill Military Paperbacks)by David Howarth
Synopses & Reviews
In Dawn of D-Day David Howarth weaves together the testimony of hundreds of eyewitnesses and has produced a breathtaking and atmospheric account of the greatest amphibious landing ever attempted. Based on interviews with survivors and accounts by participants, including American paratroopers, British engineers, French civilians and German soldiers, this enthralling story brings all the drama of June 6th, 1944 to life. David Howarth looks not only at the famous incidents but at the full range of D-Day experiences, relating the running battles between parachutists and Germans in the Norman countryside, the torment of being under fire for the first time, the agony on the invasion beaches, the shock of the German defenders and all the confusion, elation and horror of battle. Dawn of D-Day is superb history from the mouths of the men who fought on that first day of the battle for Normandy.
The exciting story of the greatest seaborne invasion in history as seen through the eyes of the participants.
