We remember D-Day: powerful and moving true stories from 6 June 1944

Shaw, Frank (Collator of war-time memories), editor; Shaw, Joan (Collator of war-time memories), editor

John Hunter, Parachute Regiment, Northants. Seventy years ago, on 6 June 1944, a great Allied Armada landed on the coast of Normandy. The invasion force launched on D-Day was a size never seen before and never likely to be seen again. 150,000 soldiers, more than 6000 ships and 11,000 combat aircraft took part in the assault. The success of that attack led 11 months later to the final liberation of Europe from a ruthless dictatorship that had threatened to permanently enslave it. In this book we hear from the men and women who were involved in the assault; those who risked their lives for a better future
