Overview

"I looked down and there were ships and ships and ships forever. I thought about how big this was and reality was beginning to come to me. This is the biggest thing that's ever happened. And now what? What really are we getting into?"
--Sergeant Tom McCarthy, 82d Airborne Division

The Allied assault on the beaches of Normandy in World War II is perhaps the most important offensive ever launched. And Eyewitness D-Day, by award-winning author D.M. Giangreco in conjunction with Kathryn Moore, and edited and with a foreword by eminent military historian Norman Polmar, is the most personal portrayal of that event ever written. Featuring interviews with more than 50 survivors, it presents the harrowing inside story of June 6th, 1944, through the eyes of the courageous men and women who actually witnessed the fighting. Hundreds of contemporary photos, including wartime pictures of the veterans, and a detailed foldout map of the Normandy beaches, create a visually impressive record of the day. To bring the full force of the intimate recollections home, the volume comes with a full-length compact disc of interviews produced by Emmy Award-winning historical documentarians Rob Lihani and Rob Kirk--so you can listen directly to the dramatic accounts of the Allied soldiers, sailors, airmen, and medical personnel themselves.

    Get this one!

    This book has a great combination of general information and personal interviews. You can use it for an encyclopedia, but I just finished reading it cover to cover! If you are someone who is fascinated by WWII and especially D-Day, this book will not disappoint you. The photos and captions are as powerful as the interviews and other info. The CD is great too.

    The Best of the Bunch

    With the 60th anniversary of D-Day on June 6th 2004, there was a large spattering of D-Day books, but I'd have to say this one was the best. It has accurate, interesting information on the invasion itself--including a detailed and easy to understand fold-out map, but also goes beyond just the technical with hundreds of stories from those who were there plus photos such as my favorite--four soliders each with a letter shaved into their hair, spelling out H-E-L-L--or the heart-breaking photo of a dead solider amongst the ruins of his Horsa glider. As I am a big WWII buff and my brithday is around June 6th, I got quite a few D-Day books, and I'd highly recommend this one, even over 'Voices of Valor,' the other D-Day book that comes with a CD and seems to be more popular. 'Eyewitness D-Day' is an amazing book to flip through, to sit and read, or display proudly on your coffee table. D.M Giangreco and Kathryn Moore should be very proud of their work.
