"D-Day: Day by Day" is a chronological approach to the operation, allowing the reader to see at a glance the preparations made for the invasion of Normandy, as well as the key actions on the beaches and further inland.In addition to the blow-by-blow account of the action during these crucial days, the book features boxes on all the key personalities involved. There are also boxes on the decisive weapons used by both the Allies and the Germans, and the key actions that were pivotal in the early days of the invasion. Other boxes contain eyewitness accounts from the soldiers, sailors, and journalists who saw at first hand the bloody beach assaults and the fierce fighting that continued after June 6. Illustrated by over 300 black-and-white photographs of the landings and subsequent fighting, "D-Day: Day by Day" also contains full-color maps. These include battle plans made before the assault and maps illustrating the movement of German and Allied forces after the landings had taken place.While the major actions dominate the text, eyewitness accounts and other stories are used to highlight actions of individual bravery and courage that, although they may not have been defining moments in the invasion, were an integral part of the overall effort, and provide an excellent guide to the human sacrifices made in order to achieve final victory.
