Description
 
Shortly before the Allied assault on Fortress Europe in 1944, Field-Marshall Erwin Rommel remarked to an aid, “The first 24 hours of the invasion will be decisive . . . For the Allies, as well as for Germany, it will be the longest day.” Ryan’s acclaimed account of June 6, 1944 takes the reader from the planning of the world’s greatest-ever amphibious landing up to its implementation. In interviews with survivors, from the highest-ranking officers of both sides, the airborne troops who opened the Battle for Normandy before dawn, the poor bloody infantry who waded ashore against the devastating fire of the defending Germans to the defenders themselves, this book captures the horror & the glory of D-Day. Reprint of the 1959 edition.
