Produced in association with the US National World War II Museum to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day, this remarkable volume explores that historic event through the museum’s archives of personal accounts and objects.With a foreword by Tom Brokaw. “This superbly illustrated work of military and oral history is both a defining introduction and a vivid refresher to D-Day.” —Booklist June 6, 1944—D-Day—is a date that will live forever in history. More than 150,000 troops landed on five beaches, with over 20,000 reported casualties on both sides. Rather than looking at the big picture, recounted so often, Everything We Have: D-Day 6.6.'44 tells the personal stories of the people involved, in their own words. Rare documents, artifacts, and firsthand accounts from The National WWII Museum’s official archives provide rare and poignant insight into the thoughts and feelings of those soldiers who fought on the beaches of Normandy.
