Synopsis

'A magnificently stirring book.' - New York Times 'The shocks, the mistakes, the courage and glory brilliantly put across.' - Sunday Times The exciting story of the greatest seaborne invasion in history D-Day as seen through the eyes of the participants Accounts by British, American, French and German eyewitnesses In Dawn of D-Day David Howarth weaves together the testimony of hundreds of eyewitnesses and has produced a breathtaking and atmospheric account of the greatest amphibious landing ever attempted. Based on interviews with survivors and accounts by participants, including American paratroopers, British engineers, French civilians and German soldiers, this enthralling story brings all the drama of 6 June 1944 to life. David Howarth looks not only at the famous incidents but at the full range of D-Day experiences, relating the running battles between parachutists and Germans in the Norman countryside, the torment of being under fire for the first time, the agony on the invasion beaches, the shock of the German defenders and all the confusion, elation and horror of battle.

Dawn of D-Day is superb history from the mouths of the men who fought on that first day of the battle for Normandy. David Howarth was a war correspondent for the BBC in World War II. He began writing in 1951 and earned critical acclaim for such books as We Die Alone, Trafalgar, The Voyage of the Armada and Waterloo: A Near Run Thing. David Howarth died in 1991. This edition includes a new foreword by his son, Stephen.
