Gaining a vital foothold in Hitler's Fortress Europe, D-Day has been called the most important day of the 20th century. This large format illustrated edition of Stephen Ambrose's classic account explains how the momentous operation was conceived and planned, the intense training and preparation that was undertaken and how the day itself unfolded, from the first paratrooper assaults shortly after midnight to the position at the end of a long and bloody day's fighting.
