Now illustrated with an extraordinary collection of over 125 photos, Stephen E. Ambrose’s D-DAY is the definitive history of World War II’s most pivotal battle, June 6, 1944, the day that changed the course of history. Drawing on more than 1,400 interviews with American, British, Canadian, French and German veterans, Ambrose reveals how the original plans for the invasion had to be abandoned, and how enlisted men and junior officers acted on their own initiative when they realized that nothing was as they were told it would be.
