From the Publisher:
"Glorious, horrifying...D-Day is a vibrant work of history that honors the sacrifice of tens of thousands of men and women" | -Time || Antony Beevor-the man who "single-handedly transgormed the reputation of military history" (The Guardian)-presents the first major account of the Normandy invasion and the liberation of Paris in more than twenty years. D-Day: The Battle for Normandy is the first book to describe not only the experiences of the American, British, Canadian, and German soldiers, but also the terrible suffering of the French civilians caught up in the fighting. Beevor draws upon research in more than thirty archives in six countries, going back to original accounts and interviews to produce the consummate account of the invasion and the ferocious offensive that led to Paris's liberation.
Annotation:
Anthony Beevor's stunning account of the invasion and subsequent battles that set the stage for the Allied victory in World War II draws on the personal experiences of the soldiers, as well as official documents. Beevor provides both a grunt's eye-level report of great carnage, as well as clear and readable explanations of command and strategy. His incisive, and sometimes highly critical, portraits of key players such as Generals Eisenhower and Montgomery make this a stand-out history.

Praise

"It is a dramatic, important and instructive story, and Beevor tells it surpassingly well. D-DAY is very much a work of military history, so of necessity it is chockablock with the sort of battlefield chess-playing that can leave the non-military mind in a state of considerable confusion. But Beevor is less interested in moving troops from pillar to post than in telling us what war was like for them and for the civilians whose paths they crossed. Readers fortunate enough to know his previous books...are aware that his fascination with warfare is compounded by a deep knowledge, not always encountered in military histories, that war is hell. People looking for romanticized combat or Greatest Generation sentimentality will not find an ounce of either here." - Jonathan Yardley 10/11/2009
