From the same series as World at War: Pearl Harbor, this book examines another portion of World War Two. This book’s topic? D-Day.
As with Pearl Harbor, G. C. Skipper did a fine job describing not just the events of the day but the whole sequence leading up to D-Day – the year of planning and the deceptions used to make the day a success.
Throughout the book are included lots of pictures, not only of the various beaches but also of the soldiers themselves, their transportation, and their interactions with those they rescued.
My only complaint concerning this book (and it applies to Pearl Harbor as well) is that it is not told in chronological order, so some of the events are confusing.
