Review:

Lt. Gen. James Gavin

If you have read all the accounts of D-Day or none of them, if you were in the fighting or on the sidelines, you will be spellbound, as I was, by this magnificent retelling of a glorious and tragic story.



John Toland

Fifty years from now, the history of D-Day, I am sure, will lean heavily on this book.



J.H. Thompson

"Chicago Sunday Tribune"

A dramatic, moving masterpiece, a living memorial to the men who died and as suspenseful as the most gripping mystery story.



"Susan Sizemore enraptures readers."

-- "Romantic Times"



"[A] sizzling tale."

-- "Library Journal" on "I Thirst for You"
