Summary
D-Day, June 6, 1944, when Allied forces undertook a massive invasion of the German-occupied coast of Normandy, France, was the biggest amphibious operation in history. This work gathers first-person stories from some of those who took part in the operation, including paratroopers and representatives of the US Coast Guard, Navy, and Air Force. The accounts are transcriptions of oral histories, and the editors have striven to preserve the authentic voices of the men as much as possible, editing only for clarification. B&w historical photos are included. Green is a freelance writer who specializes in military history. Brown served 20 years in the US Army, and for four years was an assistant professor of engineering at the US Military Academy. Zenith Press is an imprint of Quayside Publishing.
