Out of the grey haze of an early morning they came-a vast invasion armada churning its way shoreward. Along nearly 50 miles of the French coast, American, British and Canadian forces converged on the beaches of Normandy. Within minutes, thousands of soldiers were fighting their way through the land mines and steel obstacles of Hitler's vaunted "Atlantic Wall." The day was June 6, 1944. By evening the "impregnable" defences of the Third Reich had crumbled, and the liberation of Europe was finally under way.Stunningly illustrated with more than 300 photos, maps and illustrations, D-Day recreates every key moment of that historic event for a new generation, offering an authoritative new account of that unforgettable "Longest Day."D-Day is released in plenty of time for the 60th anniversary of the invasion.
