Summary
D-Day, June 6, 1944: it was the biggest amphibious operation in history. German Field Marshal Rommel, declared, 'the enemy must be annihilated before he reaches our main battlefield,' the Allied Forces undertook a massive invasion of the German-occupied coast of Normandy, France. First, there was the aerial onslaught by British and American airborne divisions, then the landing of the American, British, and Canadian seaborne troops. Over 150,000 Allied troops took the fight to the enemy, their incursion paving the way to their ultimate victory over Nazi tyranny. This book tells the story of those who lived and fought through this historic conflict. In first-person accounts of the Normandy landings, soldiers recreate the harrowing, world-changing drama of taking the beaches of France, dropping from the sky, wading out of landing craft, fighting to survive and, in the process, keeping alight the hopes of humanity

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.
