"I looked down and there were ships and ships and ships forever. I thought about how big this was and reality was beginning to come to me. This is the biggest thing that's ever happened. And now what? What really are we getting into?"
--Sergeant Tom McCarthy, 82d Airborne Division

The Allied assault on the beaches of Normandy in World War II is perhaps the most important offensive ever launched. And Eyewitness D-Day, by award-winning author D.M. Giangreco in conjunction with Kathryn Moore, and edited and with a foreword by eminent military historian Norman Polmar, is the most personal portrayal of that event ever written. Featuring interviews with more than 50 survivors, it presents the harrowing inside story of June 6th, 1944, through the eyes of the courageous men and women who actually witnessed the fighting. Hundreds of contemporary photos, including wartime pictures of the veterans, and a detailed foldout map of the Normandy beaches, create a visually impressive record of the day. To bring the full force of the intimate recollections home, the volume comes with a full-length compact disc of interviews produced by Emmy Award-winning historical documentarians Rob Lihani and Rob Kirk--so you can listen directly to the dramatic accounts of the Allied soldiers, sailors, airmen, and medical personnel themselves.
