On the night of 5 June 1944, 160,000 people vanished from the south of England, leaving an eerie silence behind them. The story of D-Day from the planners' and soldiers' point of view is familiar, but what of those who were left behind? This collection of first-hand accounts from soldiers and civilians not involved in the invasion examines the unique atmosphere of the months leading up to D-Day, the invasion and its aftermath as experienced on the Home Front.Slightly off-mint.
