9780091930110: Forgotten Voices of D-Day: A Powerful New History of the Normandy Landings in the Words of Those Who Were There

The definitive oral history of the single-day invasion that proved to be the turning point of World War Two — D-Day.

June 6, 1944 — one of the most momentous days in history: the day when Allied forces invaded Nazi-occupied Europe. Under the command of U.S. General Dwight Eisenhower, the Normandy landings were the culmination of three years’ planning and the most ambitious combined amphibious and airborne assault ever attempted. Its success marked the beginning of the end for Nazi Germany.

Drawing on the Imperial War Museum’s vast Sound Archive, Forgotten Voices of D-Day tells the full story of this turning point of the war. From the build up in Britain of a vast invasion force, to the deception measures taken to try to fool the Germans into believing the invasion would take place elsewhere.

Featuring remarkable, often untapped first-hand testimonies, Forgotten Voices of D-Day is the definitive oral history of a defining turning point in history.
