D-Day & Normandy (Commemorative magazine)
65 Years On
D-Day was the turning point of the Second World War and marked the Allies return to Europe.
Without D-Day, the Allies would not have been able to invade Europe and end the Nazi occupation. D-Day took place on 6 June 1944 when the British, American and Canadian forces landed at five beaches in Normandy. Despite the huge loss of life, the operation was a success and the Allies broke through the German lines.
This title covers the huge planning behind the operation and reveals what it was like to be there. There are guides to visiting the beaches today along with analysis of the tactics and weapons used.
Starting with the operation itself, the title goes on to reveal the weeks after D-Day, which were just as vital in pushing back the German army.
Published, to coincide with the 65th anniversary this D-Day book is a valued addition.
