Spring 1944. The world held its breath as hundreds of thousands of Allied combatants leapt across the English Channel in the largest amphibious operation of the Second World War. The epic of the Normandy invasion, legendary in myth and astounding in scope, comes to life as historian Jared Frederick resurrects long-forgotten tales of individual struggle, sacrifice, and community. Unearthing hundreds of accounts from period newspapers, he revives the lost voices of the momentous struggle to liberate Western Europe from Nazi tyranny.
