Publisher Description

The #1 internationally bestselling history of “D-Day” is now enhanced with rare video footage from the NBC News Archives for the ultimate narrative of the battle for Normandy.
“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.
