Description - D-Day by Richard Collier
Fifteen minutes after midnight on June 6th, 1944, the Allied invasion of Hitler's Fortress Europe began. Thousands of ships, soldiers and 'planes were unleashed in the great amphibious operation. Richard Collier records the words and memories of those who took part, from the commanders like Bradley and Montgomery, the fighter pilots, the glider pilots, the landing craft skippers, the paratroopers and the men and women of French Resistance. This eyewitness account of events is complemented by contemporary eyewitness testimony, documents, reports and a chorus of commentators - journalists, poets and writers -to evoke a supreme historical moment.
