It was with great excitement I opened up D-Day by Antony Beevor. Even though D-Day has been covered by most of the great World War II historians I was hoping that Beevor would deliver that special touch that only his books have, the perfect mix of history and first-hand accounts.
D-Day by Antony Beevor
With this refreshing and detailed look at D-Day, Beevor shows why he is one the best World War II historians around. With his usual mix of first-hand accounts and his analyse of the bigger picture the D-Day campaign is bought alive on the pages. From the planning stages to the liberation of Paris we see this decisive campaign from all sides. This book goes straight onto my classic shelf.
