About the book
The Allied landings in France on 6 June 1944 was a turning point in world history.
This book is a compilation of 200 images relating to all aspects of D-Day and the Normandy landings, beginning with the years of planning and preparations, all conducted in great secrecy. Next the focus is on the naval and air force operations, the airborne landings, and the British, American and Canadian forces who came ashore on 6 June.
The book also covers the months of hard fighting during the Battle of Normandy, and through to the end of the war.
Using the extensive archives of the Portsmouth D-Day Museum, this is a moving and unique record of a momentous time.
