In no other book is the atmosphere of those days so vividly and truly portrayed.The Sunday Times June 6, 1944, is one of the most famous dates in world history, and, as David Howarth shows, a defining date in countless personal histories. In this intimate chronicle, the 7,000 vessels, 12,000 aircraft, and 750,000 men committed on D-Day are taken for granted. Instead, we see D-Day through the eyes of the men on the ground as Howarth weaves together the larger story of the beginning of the battle of Normandy with the stories of the beachhead itself. The scope of Howarths visionfocusing on England and France, on sky, beach, and hedgerow, on divisions and squadsmakesDawn of D-Daya franker portrayal than any other of the turning-point of the war on the Western Front and the greatest amphibious operation in history. 21 b/w photographs.
