This visual history collates images relating to all aspects of D-Day and the Normandy landings. Beginning with the lead up to D-Day, it encompasses the equipment, planning, troops and training. It also examines the impact on civilians and the work underway in factories. As the momentum gathered, the book focuses on the final preparations in the last month before D-Day, and follows events through the Channel and naval operations, the air forces and airborne landings, landings on British beaches, landings on US beaches, before considering the aftermath and the Battle of Normandy through to the end of the war. Using the extensive archives of the Portsmouth D-Day Museum, including many of their largely unpublished collections of memories and photographs, this is a moving and unique record of a momentous time.
