The invasion has begun.
In this gripping book, Jonathan Mayo gives a blow by blow account of the events of D-Day, revealing what happened to the people swept up in this crucial moment in history.
From soldiers, French villagers and journalists, to schoolchildren and nurses, thousands were placed in extraordinary situations when the Allies landed in Normandy. This is their story.
“Studded with extraordinary detail, this is the most joltingly vivid account ever written of the day the Allies gambled everything.”
“An accessible history that conveys the havoc and vast international spread of D-Day.”
“This book creates a remarkably vivid picture of one of the most important days in modern history.”
Jonathan Mayo joined the BBC in 1987, first working in radio and then television, where he won awards for his documentaries. In 2012 he became a freelance producer, director and writer. He lives in Surrey with his wife Hannah and son Charlie.
