    If you are to read this you need a general view of what happened on D Day 6th June 1944 on the Normandy coast but if you have that this book is a little gem These are the voices all the way from Mountbatten to ordinary privates, all telling about their experiences both in preparations for it to the end of the day It is the voices of the Brits and it is the voices of the survivors of course but quite of few of them were injured It is well organized and easy to follow and very well de If you are to read this you need a general view of what happened on D Day 6th June 1944 on the Normandy coast but if you have that this book is a little gem These are the voices all the way from Mountbatten to ordinary privates, all telling about their experiences both in preparations for it to the end of the day It is the voices of the Brits and it is the voices of the survivors of course but quite of few of them were injured It is well organized and easy to follow and very well describes the chaos and quite frankly hell that was the landing The only thing that I would have liked was a better glossary there is one at the back of the book don t miss it when you read it , but it could have been much longer because this is a book with a lot of military jargon

    Another great book from the Forgotten Voices series Follows the same format of eye witness accounts this time of D Day, great chronological layout from build through execution split into airborne and seaborne then pushing inland Easy read for all ages from teens up, great for a little human insight and to use for history projects.

    I have read many D Day books and this one is up there with the best I found it addictive and couldn t put it down It s good to hear the British account of D Day as apposed to a fictional American work of art.

  7. says:

    Found this an insightful book looking at D Day s events told by those who were there Reading some of the things these young men saw and did horrifies and amazes me Worth a read if interested in this part of history.

    It wasn t as interesting as I had thought it to be The commentaries made no sense in the beginning and there wasn t a real conversational tone to it, though I guess it was tried to be made that way The chronology also seemed a bit weird and somehow the whole effect was lost on me.

    D DayThis was a very good book It tells a lot of what went on that day All of the good and bad that the soldiers did and saw.
