About the Book

Seventy years on, D-Day remains the greatest combined military operation of all time. Published in association with the Imperial War Museum, this is a remarkable collection of the stories of those who took part.

June 6th 1944 saw the greatest combined military operation of all time and subsequently D-day has become known as the single most crucial watershed of the last century. To commemorate this event, Martin Bowman has compiled a unique collection of personal narratives of those who were part of this extraordinary moment in history.

Unique in its treatment, this book includes a range of experiences from civilians as well as all ranks from air, land and naval services reflecting the fact that this was a combined operation and not simply a land invasion as it’s often portrayed. Significantly these fascinating accounts, many sourced from Martin Bowman’s extensive contacts with international veterans associations, have been found from all the major nations that took part on the day to authentically represent the combined accomplishment of services and nations.

The book also includes sidebars and information boxes of fascinating factual detail that both anchor the stories to the chronological history of the day and bring the events into pin-point clarity.
