Relive the events of June 6, 1944 through eye witness accounts that describe 20 real-life stories from the D-Day landings. This book - which presents collated photographs, personal accounts and testimonies from all sides with full-page illustrations dramatizing individual roles - brings a key moment in history to life for young readers hearing about the event for the first time, as we commemorate its 75th anniversary.

Meet:

  • Company Sergeant Major Stanley Hollis, the only person to receive the Victoria Cross for their actions that day
  • Lt. Richard Winter, among the first to be parachuted into action (as depicted in Band of Brothers)
  • American journalist Martha Gellhorn, the only woman known to have been present, after disguising herself as a stretcher bearer
  • As well as a host of other inspiring individuals who each played an important part in the turning point of World War II
From those involved in reconnaissance , planning and logistics , espionage and development of new technology , through to the military units involved in the invasion and landings , and the subsequent phases of the invasion, this authentic retelling provides a view from every angle of the action.
