A captivating book of great stories. Feb 19, Glenn rated it really liked it. A great collection of short true stories on the D-Day Landings. Well written, informative and interesting. This year is the 70th anniversary of D-Day, otherwise known as Operation Overlord, the greatest sea borne invasion in history, and destined to remain so, possibly forever.
This page book is a great reminder of the heroism of so many of those guys who set out from ports around here in the south of England bound for the French coast seventy years ago, so many of whom never returned. Many of them were still teenagers!

The book is published by Usborne Publishing who specialise in educational titles and books for the young, and I guess this book is aimed at older children, but it is in no way just for them. Even for seasoned D-Day experts there is plenty here to keep the reader interested. The book includes the personal stories of brave highly decorated individuals, British, American, and Canadian, who went beyond the call of duty to ensure that the invasion was ultimately a success.

Also included is a number of interesting illustrations by Ian McNee that help to bring the stories so much to life, plus a useful small glossary at the end to keep you up to speed with all the forces jargon prevalent at the time. And they are nothing to do with after hours drinking either!
The glossary certainly helps with all that. You can read an extended review of this book on my website at www. Mar 05, Kyle rated it it was amazing Shelves: Each story is a unique journal, biography, or recorded attack that puts ordinary men in the limelight and recognizes them for the amazing heroes they are.
Each story shares how one man or a group of men saved lives in the hundreds, or put their life on the line before anyone else. Many of these men died and the book helps the reader gain a deep appreciation for the torment these s So the entire book is focused on a timeline throughout World War II, but emphasizes the results and plans for D-Day. Many of these men died and the book helps the reader gain a deep appreciation for the torment these soldiers experienced awaiting D-Day.
I highly recommend reading this when you can be wide awake and enjoy the great writing, and the excellent stories The last two were my favorite. It includes maps, pictures, and definitions for those unfamiliar with war, so don't feel like you need to be a history buff. However, the story does have some graphic imagery and stories, so be sure you or your intended reader can handle some detailed war scenes. This book is excellent, just be sure you have a mature audience to appreciate it.
Sep 14, Justin Yan rated it really liked it Shelves: I happened to get this for my birthday quite a while ago and I still find the stories quite interesting. This book fills in all of the cool explanations to events that occurred on D-Day, from the landing on Omaha and several other beaches to the paratroopers touching down by the bridges. I think the best aspect of this book is that it is told in a third person point of view. I am able to learn so much about individual characters in the invasio Well here I am again with these awesome WWII books. I am able to learn so much about individual characters in the invasion while having a relaxing time, and not feeling like I'm being prodded while reading one of those monotonous factual books.
The only gripe I have about this book is that I wanted it too be a little longer. I realize this isn't exactly a valid complaint seeing as you can only link so many things together to make the book interesting while providing information.

Still a great book and I recommend it to anyone looking for a good book to fill in some gaps regarding the D-Day invasion. May 23, Daniel rated it really liked it. Although a majority of the book takes place in a serious tone, some events were amusing and I was very absorbed in the situations of the many Allied Troops who were somehow able to make through the situations despite the hardships that faced them.
Personally, I liked the event where a British soldier was able to i In "True Stories of D-Day", Henry Brook describes many operations that occurred before, during, and after the time that Operation Overlord took place on the Normandy Beaches in France.
