Overview
-

6 June 1944: the date that marked the beginning of the end of the war in north-west Europe, and the day on which the liberation of France began.

This lavishly illustrated book relives the story of D-Day, from the pre-invasion preparations through to the landings themselves and the subsequent battle for control of Normandy, all beautifully illustrated through an unparalleled collection of paintings, drawings and maps.

However, it is not simply a collection of artwork; first and foremost it is a historically accurate recollection of events, painstakingly researched with the assistance of leading historians.

Being illustrated by the world’s leading military and aviation artists rather than photographs makes it a totally unique account and very different to any others.

Much of the work included was produced exclusively for the book and many specially created maps and diagrams make the edition perfect for military enthusiasts and art collectors alike. These exceptional works help knit together this brief account of D-Day, serving as a lasting tribute to all who fought during the epic Normandy Campaign.
