9780241968970: D-Day: The Battle for Normandy

The definitive account of the Normandy invasion by the bestselling author of Stalingrad and The Fall of Berlin 1945

From critically acclaimed world historian, Antony Beevor, this is the first major account in more than twenty years to cover the whole invasion from June 6, 1944, right up to the liberation of Paris on August 25. It is the first book to describe not only the experiences of the American, British, Canadian, and German soldiers, but also the terrible suffering of the French caught up in the fighting. More French civilians were killed by Allied bombing and shelling than British civilians were by the Luftwaffe.

The Allied fleet attempted by far the largest amphibious assault ever, and what followed was a battle as savage as anything seen on the Eastern Front. Casualties mounted on both sides, as did the tensions between the principal commanders. Even the joys of liberation had their darker side. The war in northern France marked not just a generation, but the whole of the postwar world, profoundly influencing relations between America and Europe. Beevor draws upon his research in more than thirty archives in six countries, going back to original accounts, interviews conducted by combat historians just after the action, and many diaries and letters donated to museums and archives in recent years.

D-Day will surely be hailed as the consummate account of the Normandy invasion and the ferocious offensive that led to the liberation of Paris.

About the Author:

Antony Beevor is the bestselling author of five nonfiction books, including The Battle for Spain, which won the La Vanguardia Prize, Paris After the Liberation: 1944-1949, Stalingrad, which won the Samuel Johnson Prize, the Wolfson Prize for History, and the Hawthornden Prize for Literature, and The Fall of Berlin 1945, which received the first Longman-History Today Trustees' Award.

From AudioFile:

After briefly treating the buildup to D-Day, Beevor examines the invasion and subsequent liberation of Paris in a mix of sometimes-dry strategic overview and often-ghastly personal details. Simon Vance gives it all proper weight, without extravagance. He has a likable voice and pleasant English accent, which he varies, at times from one word to the next, to suit the large number of quotations. His American accent is good, and he even does Canadian. Other accents make one wonder about the convention of presenting foreign speech as accented English, but it works. It's easy to lose track in complex audio histories (especially military); Vance's clarity and excellent pacing help. A fascinating and well-read book. W.M. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine

As casualties mounted, so too did the tensions between the principal commanders on both sides. Meanwhile, French civilians caught in the middle of these battlefields or under Allied bombing endured terrible suffering. Even the joys of Liberation had their darker side. Antony Beevor's gripping narrative conveys the true experience of war.'A knockout reassessment of one of the Second World War's great set-piece battles.  Swoops from the vicious close-quarter fighting in the hedgerows to the petrified French onlookers and onwards to the political leaders wrestling with monumental decisions.'  Sunday Times 'Beevor has succeeded brilliantly.  D-Day can sit proudly alongside his other masterworks on Stalingrad and the fall of Berlin.  Superbly brings the events of that summer to life again.'  Patrick Bishop, Daily Telegraph 'As near as possible to experiencing what it was like to be there . . . It is almost impossible for a reader not to get caught up in the excitement.' Giles Foden, Guardian 'A magnificent portrait.  Beevor has ssembled a mass of unfamiliar sources, fresh voices and untold anecdotes.  As powerful and authoritative an account of the battle for Normandy as we are likely to get. Max Hastings, Sunday Times 'D-Day is a triumph of research . . . on almost every page there's some little detail that sticks in the mind or tweaks the heart.  This is a terrific, inspiring, heartbreaking book. Sam Leith, Daily Mail 'Impeccable, splendid, thoroughly researched and gripping.  Beevor is a master of narrative, expertly blending the grand sweep with the telling anecdote.' Domicic Sandbrook, Observer.
