Description D-Day as They Saw it de Jon E. Lewis:

It was going to be the greatest amphibious operation of all time claimed Admiral Sir Bertram Ramsay, the naval commander of the Allied invasion of Normandy. He did not exaggerate, for the Allied fleet consisted of over 5,000 craft and had by the end of 'the longest day' landed 156,000 men and breached Hitler's much vaunted defensive wall. Yet dramatic and historic though the events of D-Day were, they were just the opening round of a much bigger and equally remarkable battle for the whole of Normandy that followed for the next ten weeks. Sixty years on, this collection of rare, first-hand accounts tells the story of D-Day and the subsequent battle, in the words of soldiers and civilians on both sides of the war. There are classic soldiers' accounts from the likes of Rommel and Bradley, together with front line reports by the best war correspondents such as Hemingway and Alan Melville. Jon E. Lewis is a historian and writer, whose books on history and military history are sold worldwide. He is also editor of many The Mammoth Book of anthologies, including the bestselling On the Edge and Endurance and Adventure. He holds graduate and postgraduate degrees in history. His work has appeared in New Statesman, the Independent, Time Out and the Guardian. He lives in Herefordshire with his partner and children. Praise for his previous books: England: The Autobiography: 'A triumph' Saul David, author of Victoria's Army The British Soldier: The Autobiography: 'this thoughtful compilation ... almost unbearably moving.' Guardian 'Compelling tommy's eye view of war.' Daily Telegraph 'What a book. Five stars.' Daily Express
