Ten Days to D-Day: Countdown to the Liberation of Europe

Author(s): David Stafford (University of Edinburgh)

World War 2 | History

It was the day that changed the course of a war, and also a century. Meticulous in their planning, brilliant in their execution, the landings of 6 June 1944 constitute the largest seaborne assault ever attempted. As dawn rose, and the first of the 150,000 Allied troops reached the Normandy beaches, D-Day heralded the beginning of the end of the Second World War.Researched from contemporary letters, diaries and official records, Ten Days to D-Day is history as it happened, a book that brings these tumultuous events brilliantly to life. It is a story of nations but, above all, it is an account of the lives of individual men and women on the brink of an epic moment in history.
