D-Day : June 6, 1944 : the climactic battle of World War II

Ambrose, Stephen E.2016
Books
On the basis of 1400 oral histories from the men who were there, Stephen E. Ambrose reveals that the intricate plan for the invasion of France in June 1944 had to be abandoned before the first shot was fired. The true story of D-Day, as Ambrose relates it, is about the citizen soldiers - junior officers and enlisted men - taking the initiative to act on their own to break through Hitler's Atlantic Wall when they realised that nothing was as they had been told it would be.
