Shortly before the inevitable Allied assault on Fortress Europe in 1944, Field-Marshal Erwin Rommel remarked to an aide "The first 24 hours of the invasion will be decisive...For the Allies, as well as for Germany, it will be the longest day". Cornelius Ryan's acclaimed account of 6th June 1944, which has sold over 10 million copies, takes the reader from the planning of the world's greatest-ever amphibious landing up to its implementation. In interviews with survivors, from the highest-ranking officers of both sides, the airborne troops who opened the Battle of Normandy before dawn, the poor bloody infantry who waded ashore against the devastating fire of the defending Germans to the defenders themselves, "The Longest Day" captures the horror and the glory of D-Day. Individual and collective acts of heroism are recounted as well as foul-ups and mistakes. Ryan details the shambles of Omaha Beach which has been so movingly depicted in Steven Spielberg's recent film "Saving Private Ryan".

Review:

Impressive, hardback, anniversary edition...this timely book finally lets Ryan off his leash and the result is enthralling...as a collector s edition it is pure gold. --Family Tree Magazine

The great strength of [The Longest Day] ...is the incorporation of the primary sources allowing readers to experience the letters, transcripts and maps from the time...with the recordings of many of the leading D-Day protagonists. We can all hear Eisenhower s experiences of D-Day from his own mouth. Nothing will connect new audiences with our past more than this personal testimony from beyond the grave. --Dan Snow

Carlton Books have produced a splendid new edition of a classic book...worth every penny for the excellent illustrated version, a very high quality production and all the extras included in it...If you buy one D-Day 70 commemorative book this year make it this one. --Sommecourt

This glossy, coffee table-style offering will introduce a new generation to Cornelius Ryan s work, as well as making an impressive...addition to any military historian s collection. --Soldier Magazine, June 2014.
