The Lovereading4Kids comment
This is a comprehensive and fascinating description of the planning and execution of D-Day, the term given to the day on which the Allied Forces landed in huge numbers upon the French coast at Normandy to launch a massive attack upon the German Wehrmacht in June 1944. Henry Brook uses the real-life experiences from those involved to tell the story of D-Day, from soldiers in combat for the first time to French resistance fighters, each tale is woven around relevant facts about the Second World War including the ships and boats used, the military tactics employed and the terrible loss of life incurred.
This is one of three books included in a special boxset from Usborne called True Stories of the Second World War published in association with the Imperial War Museum to mark the 70th Anniversary of D-Day.
