Sintesi dell'editore

Explore how D-Day started, the aftermath, and the events in between!

D-Day, the Allied invasion of German-held Normandy, was one of the most extraordinary achievements not only of the Second World War, but in the whole of military history. Millions of Allied personnel were involved in launching the greatest sea-borne invasion ever undertaken. Incredible acts of cunning and of courage ensured success in an operation that changed the face of the war, opening a vast new front. It led to the liberation of France and the defeat of Nazi Germany.

Why was this extraordinary operation launched? How was it done? And what happened in the aftermath? Some of the questions and topics covered in this audiobook include:

  • Why D-Day?
  • Preparation
  • Deception
  • The commanders
  • The men and equipment
  • The German defenses
  • The paratrooper landings
  • The resistance
  • Advance
  • Breakout
  • And a great deal more!

starsGreat book and I got mine at a great deal.

The wisdom of the explanations of the arrangements for and the implementation of the incursion are the top I've read. The author’s style is very easy to read and hard to put down.

My first book here and great one.

I first read this book some years ago and it has not lost its appropriateness. I have caught some say there is a certain amount of monotony but it did not trouble me.

I have read quite a few books on D-Day before, but this author has delivered information on a subject that is regularly overlooked or given short shrift. So many points to discuss but you need to listen to it yourself.

A certain guide for history lovers.

I am fond of war history so in search of my thrust I came here and get this audible for me. I am very happy after listening to it. The author provided the details in such a way that I got everything what I was in search. I would recommend it for everyone.

Likely, Saving Private Ryan

Before listening to this book I was saying that "The Longest Day" was the top book written about “D-Day”. Perhaps about the preparation and time leading up to D-Day.
This book has to be the superlative about all the different coasts attacked. Highly recommended, obviously for all.

Great book to give real understanding of D-Day.

The author does a remarkable job of providing you a factual understanding of what our heroic men went through on that day. He also gives us the counter understanding of the German view of it too.
I recommend this book, particularly for those who have doubt in their minds. This is a perfect new addition to my digital library.

The author is great.......

The most inclusive history on the topic. A great read; full of intrepidness and self-effacement. Really rousing.
The author has an ability for telling you the stories that make up History. Not just the History. He makes history more thrilling by putting it in setting and illumination not just the basics but he gets into the stories of the men.

A historical day in the history.

This is my first book and I am proud of it. The author provided a brief history of the day with examples and the narrator did a fabulous job as well.

Any additional comments?

My 12-year-old daughter loved to listen to this book. It was very well narrated and appropriate for young readers. The photos and details were very helpful in giving him the full picture of what transpired. He can't wait to read more from this author.

D Day for new generation.

Any additional comments?

Excellent book for new generation. He quickly read it cover to cover. Also, a good summary for adults who do not want to take the time to read Atkinson's WW II Trilogy......

Informative read, very interesting.

Any additional comments?

This is a thorough review of events leading up to and including the duration and conclusion of world war II. It is a compelling and horrific story that enables young people to "live" the history.
